The governor expressed fears that Oshiomhole is allegedly aiming at slowing down the pace of development in the state by triggering trouble and civil disobedience.

However, in defence of Oshiomhole, the APC secretary in Edo, Lawrence Okah, dismissed Obaseki's allegations, adding that while God will see the party through all ordeals, its leadership will not relent in carefully protecting a clean reputation.

Earlier, Legit.ng reported that Obaseki had taken a swipe at Oshiomhole, saying he was behaving with impunity. Obaseki said the national chairman of the APC was supposed to inform the Edo government of any of his visit as courtesy demands.

The ruling party chairman attended the funeral ceremony of late Cecilia Agbonyinma, mother of Hon Ehiozuwa Agbonyinma, in Benin City.

Moreover, there was perceived tension rose in the afternoon of Saturday, February 22, in parts of Benin, capital of Edo, ahead of his visit.

There was heavy security presence at the Benin airport, barring some youths from getting close to Oshiomhole's convoy.

However, this did not stop the APC youths from booing him. According to reports, the youths pelted his convoy with empty water can.

It was gathered that the road leading to Oshiomhole’s residence was barricaded to prevent any political meetings from holding at his residence.
