The saying that when things fall apart, the centre cannot hold seems to be playing out in Edo state as the governor Godwin Obaseki has ordered the demolition of a property belonging to his former deputy, Dr. Pius Odubu following the acrimony that ensued the 2020 governorship election in the state,
Leakblast.com gathered that the Odubu’s property was occupied by his younger brother and his family at the time it was demolished yesterday evening.
also, bulldozers also demolished two other buildings said to belong to Mr. Mike Etemuagbon and Prof. Julius Ihonvbere, who are said to be allies of ex-Governor Adams Oshiomhole.
In his reaction, Dr. Odubu described it as unfortunate, saying the matter was already before the court.
He said he had read in the Nigeria Observer newspaper in January that his Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) of his property situated at Dennis Osadebey Avenue in the Government Reserve Area (GRA) in Benin, has been revoked.
Narrating the incident, in what some may regard as raw show of power, Mrs. Precious Odubu, told newsmen at about 4pm she noticed some strange looking policemen who came into the compound through the other gate and she approached them to inquire about their mission.
“Without even waiting for my response, they just brought in their bulldozers and started destroying the house without allowing us to remove our properties”, she explained.
