PDP Raises Alarm As Over 300 Police Officers Lay Siege On The Hotel Occupied By Wike In Edo State

The People's Democratic Party (PDP), has raisen alarm, over the barricade of the hotel, occupied by Nyesom Wike, in Benin, the capital city of Edo state.

It is barely 12 hours, to the Edo State Governorship Election; and the hotel, where Wike is lodging, in Benin-City, is under siege.

Wike, who is the Governor of Rivers State and also, happens to be, the Chairman of the PDP National Campaign Council for the Edo Governorship Election, is currently under siege and house arrest, while on official assignment in Edo State.

This was made known in a Press statement, delivered by Akawor Desmond, the chairman of Rivers PDP. He reportedly stated that, over 300 policemen, have laid siege to the hotel, where the governor is staying.

He also stated that, Mallam Abdullahi Ganduje, the Executive Governor of Kano State; and, Hope Uzodinma, of Imo State, are all moving freely; while, Wike has been prevented from going out, by over 300 Policemen.

His conclusion was, this was expected, as Ganduje and Uzodinma, are of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

It is important that, we all remember that, Wike and Ganduje, both occupy same positions (Chairman Of National Campaign Council) for PDP and APC respectively; while one walks freely, the other, is on house arrest and restrictions.

However, we pray, for a peaceful, free and credible election in Edo State.
