Edo State Bomb Blast- PDP Accuses Oshiomole

Edo State was on Saturday October 18, rocked by an explosion as a mini estate housing Shalom Dental Clinic belonging to the wife of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was shattered with suspected explosive device at 10:30pm on Saturday. It was reported that the explosive attack, which shattered the roof, doors,windows and ceiling of some of the apartments in the mini estate situated along Osadebey Avenue GRA, where Edo State Government House is located, was carried out at the late hour of the night when residents are already preparing to sleep. Pastor Ize-Iyamu, who was accompanied to the scene of the incident by the Edo State chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dan Orbih, and other top party chieftains, blamed the attack on political opponents in the state and accused the governor of masterminding the attack. In response to his claims, the Edo State Commissioner for Information, Louis Odion, released a statement rejecting the claims. Mr odion said that the claims was another phase in what clearly had become the desperation of the PDP to spread falsehood and sow fear in the minds of the people of Edo State with a view to simulating a crisis. "For the avoidance of doubt, the Edo State government wishes to state that the report of bomb explosion at the Edo Government House is patently false. No sooner had the purported "bomb attack" been reported by an online medium with further claim of bomb explosion within Government House, than Mr Ize-Iyamu quickly called a press conference to point fingers at the Governor, Comrade Adams Eric Oshiomhole, as the mastermind of the explosion at the clinic owned by his wife. By Ize-Iyamu's ludicrous account and his haste to accuse Comrade Oshiomhole of culpability for a supposed crime yet to be investigated, we are persuaded to believe he is merely acting out a script. It is laughable indeed that any sane man will be targeting an obscure clinic that is, at best, now moribund. Mr Ize-Iyamu's wild allegation fits into PDP's jaded style of stage-managing assaults on its agents to be used as pretext by its thugs to attack officials of Edo State Government and agents of the APC. Again, Mr Ize-Iyamu's reference to cultists being engaged against PDP is ironic and laughable. Even as full-time president of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Oshiomhole was known for his non-violence philosophy. On the contrary, Edo people know those with the history of cultism and violence dating back to their school days. Against the backdrop of this latest purported attack on his wife's clinic, which we believe was stage-managed, we wish to alert the police to put Pastor Ize-Iyamu and his co-travellers under close watch as allegations of this nature had always been the prelude to staging an attack on All Progressives Congress (APC) members in the state in the past," Mr Odion said.
