Edo Train Attack: APC Tackles Governor Obaseki Over Abduction

Governor Godwin Obaseki has been queried by the Edo State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) following the recent attack on passengers of the train station in Igueben Local Government Area of the state.

No less than 31 passengers were confirmed missing following the incident and security operatives are on the trail of the abductors who are believed to be herdsmen.

Reacting to the development in a statement on Monday, the state APC Publicity Secretary, Peter Igbinigbe, condemned the abduction, calling it saddening in the wake of the new year celebration.

“It is saddening to experience this especially when we are still basking in the euphoria of the new year.

“However, this smack of the lack in the security apparatus in Edo State has been expected of the Chief Security Officer, Governor Godwin Obaseki.

“We have demanded that the Governor should explain to Edo people what he does with the monthly humongous security vote he receives from the Federal Government.

“We are also not unaware that the Governor receives not less than N800 million monthly to tackle insecurity in Edo State monthly", he stated.
