Hours after the embattled Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki was disqualified by the All Progressives Congress (APC) screening committee from the Edo 2020 Governorship election, information have filtered in of grand heist plot by foreign aides of the governor.
The aides mainly of Urhobo, Ijaw, Itsekiri, Igbo and Youruba extraction held a meeting at Protea Hotel at about 7pm where they finalised on plans to loot Edo treasury through phony deals and contracts.
Amongst those sighted exiting the meeting venue were the governor’s personal assistant, Tijani Nwadei (TJ) and Jiro.
According to sources, TJ and his cohorts will use two companies “Redwire” and “Vissaus” as conduit pipes to actualise the plot. The companies owned in proxy by TJ is operated by Jiro and one Temitayo Utomi.
Apart from phony contracts and shady deals, they also plan to engage the companies in money laundering activities to siphone the common patrimony of Edo people.
We wish to alert Edo people of this criminal plot by TJ and his cohorts who had less than N100,000 in their accounts as at 2016 when they were ferried in from mainly Lagos by outgoing Governor Godwin Obaseki
