Edog election: Oshiomhole,
Philip Shaibu’s wife, Marryann
fight dirty
Maryann Philip-Shaibu, the wife of Edo Deputy
Governor and Adams Oshiomhole, a former
Governor of the State, have engaged in a war of
words over an alleged threat to the life of the
Deputy Governor’s wife.
Marryann had alleged that Oshiomhole sent thugs
to monitor her movement, in a petition to Edo
Commissioner of Police, Babatunde Kokumo, by
her lawyer, Idemudia Ilueminosen.
The petition said: “We are informed by our client
that on Sunday, September 6, 2020, at Jattu in
Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State,
during the All Progressives Congress (APC)
campaign tour to the community, Comrade
Oshiomhole, a chieftain of APC, threatened to deal
with our client, Mrs. Maryann Philip-Shaibu, after
casting aspersions on her person and sending
several warnings that she steers clear of
campaigning for her party, the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) under which platform her
husband, Hon. Philip Shaibu is contesting as a
deputy governorship candidate, along with the
standard-bearer, the Governor, Mr. Godwin
Nogheghase Obaseki.
“We are further informed by our client that
Comrade Oshiomhole did not only threaten to deal
with her but he has also declared that he has sent
some thugs to monitor her movements in Etsako
West LGA, with a view to carrying out the threat of
dealing with her.
“Consequent upon this, our client for fear of being
hurt or harm by Comrade Oshiomhole and the
assigned thugs has not been able to continue with
her campaign.
“It is on this note that we passionately plead with
you (Kokumo) on behalf of our client, to use your
good office to investigate the incident, with a view
to bringing Comrade Oshiomhole and his cohorts
to book, to avert any unpleasant and unforeseen
harm coming to our client, especially as the Edo
State governorship election is by the corner;
precisely on September 19, 2020.
‘’This is more so that the lives of our client and
her family (by this threat) are at stake and the
situation may degenerate into a full-blown crisis if
nothing urgent is done.”
Reacting to the Deputy Governor’s wife’s claim,
Victor Oshioke, the spokesman to Oshiomhole,
said the petition was a futile attempt by Maryann
to divert attention from her trending video where
she was threatening to flog some women if they
attend any event other than the one she
organised.
He said the petition was a calculated attempt to
rubbish the name of the former APC National
Chairman.
Oshiomhole said that the Deputy Governor and his
wife should find another way to save their family
image, which, according to him, had been badly
damaged by their numerous unguarded public
utterances.
The statement said that the former Governor
cannot, under any circumstance, “be distracted by
the buzzing of baby mosquitoes like Shaibu and
his wife.”
