Edo Election: Wike Held Hostage In Hotel Room - PDP Raises Alarm by Kwanza: 7:36pm On Sep 18
The Hotel where the Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike is lodging while on official assignment in Benin, Edo State has been held siege by over 300 Police men.

Recall that Governor Wike was appointed Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo Governorship election; this is same position Governor Ganduje of Kano State occupies for his party the APC.

Governor Ganduje and Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State are all in Benin, Edo State carrying out their assignment for the APC without any molestation or intimidation.

And in a breach of the pledge they made security agencies have decided to harass and intimidate Governor Wike who has not done any wrong.

Rivers People Warn that we Shall hold the IGP responsible for anything that happens to our Governor.

Signed:
Ambassador Akawor Desmond, Chairman
PDP Rivers State

Less than 24 hours to Edo state governorship election, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Friday cried out that its governors are being held hostage by police in the state.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, the National Chairman of the Party, Prince Uche Secondus, who raised the alarm said that police have surrounded the Westend Hotel occupied by the PDP governors.

Secondus called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, to order his men to vacate the hotel immediately.

He added that the governors lives are in danger, noting that the APC governors, who are also in Benin are not harassed.

Secondus alleged that Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma and the Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege are presently in the home of former governor of Edo state, Adams Oshiomhole.

He said: “The Policemen have surrounded the hotel and their lives are in danger. We call on IGP to ask the police to leave the place because their lives are in danger.

“If APC governors are in Benin, the PDP governors should be in Benin. Our governors would remain in Benin, no one can intimidate us.

“We are bringing this to the attention of the international community. Elections must be free and fair. Elections must be allowed to hold. You cannot allow APC governors in Edo and bar PDP governors.”

In 2014 ameachi wasn't even allowed to enter ekiti.

Another governor isn't suppose to be in Edo now when the atmosphere is tense, you aren't voting and the media can monitor the election itself

I don’t see obaseki surviving this, but one can hope he does. We don’t know who that man in shock absorbers is really supporting. His body language is hard to read.
