Okosun who made the allegation during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics said: "Before this time, the governor has threatened that each time Comrade (Oshiomhole) comes to Edo state, he has given orders that he should be dealt with.

"What you saw yesterday was an attempt to actually implement that instruction for the governor to deal with Adams Oshiomhole, his predecessor in office. His high demand is that he should be killed.”
