Oshiomhole Petitions The Army Over Illegal Deployment

Oshiomhole petitions the army


Governor Adams Oshiomhole has threatened to drag authorities of the Nigerian Army to the International Criminal Court over terror unleashed on APC members and journalists in Edo North and Central Senatorial District on Saturday. 

Oshiomhole in a petition he made to the Commander of the 4 Brigade Headquarters of the Nigerian Army in Benin City, Brig-Gen. Olajide Laleye said “reports reaching me indicated that Lt Col.Uwadia (retd) had illegally and unconstitutionally deployed not less than 3 trucks of soldiers to Owan Federal constituency which was used to harass and intimidate members of the APC in the Federal constituency. As I write, the said retired Lt Col. was also issuing threats and directing the soldiers to shoot at sight any APC member that resists his directives during and after the elections.

“Evidently, the conduct of the aforementioned political office holder is not only illegal and unconstitutional, but flagrant abuse of the military. It is not only reprehensible, it is unacceptable to abuse and misuse the army for purely partisan purposes. I wish to request you use your good office to call Uwadia to order and stop this illegal and unconstitutional deployment of soldiers for purely partisan objectives during elections. “Failure to stem this patently illegal action can result in consequences that are likely to go beyond the shores of Nigeria. The world is watching.”
