The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has vowed to use the nation’s laws to tame aggressors called ‘lions and tigers’ sponsored to cause violence during the forthcoming election.
The governor said this during the Ward 10 campaign rally in Opoji, Esan Central Local Government Area of the state.
The warning followed intelligence report, urging him to suspend his campaign at the maternal home of a prominent politician in Opoji.
His comment comes weeks after the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Osagie Ize-Iyamu, in the election was seen addressing suspected hoodlums code-named ‘lions and tigers’ in a viral video.
While urging PDP members and supporters not to succumb to threats, Obaseki said, “We will tame the lions and tigers in Edo State with relevant laws of our country.”
