Ex-NBA President Olumide Akpata Joins Edo Governorship Race
Edo State Government has condemned the attack on the Labour Party’s Governorship candidate, Olumide Akpata, at the University of Benin by students of the institution on Friday.

Gatekeepers News reports that in a statement issued on Saturday, state Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, Chris Nehikhare, said an investigation is ongoing concerning the matter.

“Claims and counterclaims have been made by Mr. Akpata and the Student Union Government (SUG) of the University in statements issued by both parties on April 13, and active investigation is ongoing on the issue.

“The Edo State Government, however, warns in the strongest terms that it will not tolerate violence or this sort of irresponsible behaviour which was associated with the visit of Mr. Akpata to the institution.

“Government has the primary responsibility to ensure the security of lives and property in the State and will spare no effort to ensure that anyone who breaches the peace, no matter how highly placed, will face the full weight of the law.

“We hereby call on all Edo people to go about their lawful businesses without let as relevant agencies progress with their investigation into the said matter.
