Press Release
It has come to our knowledge the directives of the Edo state government and leadership of the state chapter of the People’s Democratic Party to security agencies particularly the Police, to without reason, arrest some members of the All Progressives Congress(APC) across the state. This spate of arrests is one of the responsibilities given to the illegal LGA Liaison Officers recently appointed by the State government. Paul Aronokhale, the Etsako East LGA Liaison Officer did not wait to resume office before he swung into action in this regard. Agbomere aka Holyman, a known ally of Philip Shaibu, the State Deputy Governor is parading the entire Etsako West LGA with men of the Nigeria Army in attempts to effect arrest.
It should be noted that the APC is a law abiding institution poised to win the forthcoming election in a free and free contest. However, we wish to state clearly and with sense of commitment that our hands shall not be folded while our members, on the prompting of the state government and opposition party(PDP), are arrested on frivolous and unfounded reasons.
We,therefore,call on the state commissioner of police and other security agencies to be highly circumspect,and exercise the highest level of professionalism and discretion in carrying out their duties as the forthcoming elections approach.
Edo state must not be thrown into turmoil and chaos.

Jarret Tenebe
State Deputy Chairman, APC.
