Thugs beat up Oshiomhole, others in Edo State

Suspected thugs have beaten up Seidu Oshiomhole, the younger brother of the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress and lawmaker-elect (Etsako West 11) of the Edo State House of Assembly, Tribune Online is reporting.

The attack on Oshiomhole and 14 other lawmakers of the Edo State House of Assembly is the latest in the crisis between the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, and the National Chairman of the APC.

Some of them were said to have sustained serious injuries. A former Deputy Speaker of the Assembly, Victor Tiger Edoror, was said to have led his colleagues to the police headquarters in Benin to report the assault, Tribune claims.
