In this interview, Chief Francis Inegbeniki, a chieftain of the Edo state chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC spoke on the bombing of house in Benin City on Saturday, 1st February 2020 while he was away hosting a rally of the Edo Central Senatorial District of the party, the factionalisation of the party in Edo state.
Excerpts – The Political crisis within the APC Edo State chapter is taking a frightening dimension with some members of the party allegedly using explosives to attack one another especially the house of Chief Francis Inegbeniki.
Am sure you’re referring to the incident that took place in my house at about 3:30 yesterday, (Saturday, 1st February 2020) morning, where unknown persons threw Improvised Explosive Device (IED) into my compound.
Eehh! Really am still in shock, I am traumatized, my family is traumatized. But I now have hope when I read The Nation newspaper of today, Sunday the 2nd, I saw that Edo State Government gave me a lead. Their action was very swift, they were able to do that intelligence investigation and from their intelligence report they are accusing some politicians of throwing explosives into my compound. So, am happy that Edo State Government is working very hard to unravel those who threw these explosives.
In the Edo State Government release published in The Nation newspaper of today, it was confirmed that some politicians threw explosives into my house. This is a very frightening dimension, it’s very frightening.
