Governor Oshiomhole's Aide Assassinated In Edo State

Comrade Olaitan Oyerinde
By Saharareporters, New York

Olaitan Oyerinde a popular labour activist and principal secretary to the Governor of Edo State Adams Oshiomhole was murdered in cold blood last night around 2: 00 AM by unknown gunmen in Benin city, the capital of Edo state.

Comrade Olaitan was shot to death in from of his wife and children by armed assassins who stormed his officials residence in the city. His murder is apparently related to the Governor Oshiomhole's upcoming re-election campaign in Edo State. As an official aide to the governor Olaitan is crucial to the coordination and management of electioneering activities for the governor. Comrade Olaitan a University of Lagos alumni is well-known and highly respected as an excellent organizer.

Just last week the governor narrowly escaped a mysterious auto accident in the state, a truck rammed into his convoy as he was returning from a campaign rally, killing 3 journalists and injuring several others.

Also,  a few hours later a group of assassins stormed the house of the commissioner of information in the state Louis Odion attempting to kill him but the commissioner escaped being killed because he was not home when the assassins came calling.

This is wht we gt whn we

This is wht we gt whn we choose to keep quiet instead of speaking out,fr fear of dying.Dele Giwa was killed,som pple knws d whole facts but chose to keep silent fr fear of being 'FORCEFULLY' KEPT SILENT !Bola Ige,Alfred Rewane etc,too numerous to go over,were all killed.despite d fact dt some pple hv all d details,they refused to state d fact.and by so doing,they hv indirectly encouraged and institutionalised d act of political killing.
pls whether u reveal d facts or nt,die u must.so why nt rather die fr a glorious cause and let ur name be written in gold fr generations to cum??? thx
My condolences to his family and 'TRUE' friends

MILITARY AND PDP LINK

I want to boldly tell Nigerians that the PDP are the then Military administration boys. Come to think about it, in 1999 Abdulsalam Abubarkar military regime brought out Obasanjo from prison and indirectly gave him 600,000,000.00 to begin his campaign plans and this money was said to be donated by General Banbagida (who be fool...you can fool Nigerians for we know what is going on but only that time shall tell)Come to think of it again, in the same 1999 Abdulsalam Abubarkar military regime hand over power to Obasanjo when all Nigerians voted for Olu Falea.It was from this very angle that Nigerians indicate the interest and connection of the then Military and PDP (PEOPLE DIE IN PRISON).

PDP (PEOPLE DIE IN PRISON)

When will this going to end in Edo politics? Killing and shooting.I remember that of George Ida.Now it is Ola.It is sad hear the death of the comrade. Now PDP let me tell you all, all you can do is to ring the election as usual but Governor Adams Oshiomhole will defeat you again in the tribunal that is if you can even ring this time around. Let me ask you Mr. PDP what has you done so far? Since 1999 you have been in the leadership from Aso rock and nothing has been achieved so far.Nigeria will never ever be ok if PDP (PEOPLE DIE IN PRISON)remain in power because the Ex Military Men are the pillar of PDP and they brought in the Military style of leadership.No respect for the PDP.

LET'S GT READY TO WELCOME THE

LET'S GT READY TO WELCOME THE MILITARY...................!
POLITICAL KILLINGS + BOKO HARAM = FELLOW NIGERIANS

R.I.P

eternal rest grant unto him oh lord and let perpetual light shine on him.may his soul and the souls of the faithfuls departed thru the mercy of God rest in peace.
why is it dat all our leaders r power thirsty must they always contest a second tym?shame on them.

PDP and political assassinations

The assassination of Olaitan and the attempt on Edo state commissioner of Information are clear vindication of Oshiomole's claim that his recent convoy accident was an attempt to assassinate him. There's nothing that PDP cannot do to seize power or retain it. General Azazi has said it. This is a wake up call on Comrade Oshiomole to look beyond the PDP controlled Security apparatus for his protection and that of his entire team. God save Nigeria from desperate and wicked criminal parading as politicians.

I am afraid

I am speechless,but may his gentle soul rest in peace.nigeria,i am afraid.

No way for oshomole

These re all cooked up talk paid to castigate and tanish the image of PDP already destroyed by lucky Igbinedion and family the man who left PDP after missusing EDO STATE finances to form AC now ACN apointing Oshiomole to be governor to cover his mess. Yes Adams Oshomole did cover the mess. If its that easy, wy osho baba no go back to his labour party to be the labour governorship aspirant if he go get 1 vote..

assasination

ola,shut ur mouth...we nor fear una, never again will pdp rule in edo state. even if una kill everybody finish 4 d state, even if una kill oshiomole we go vote for him dead body...blood suck demons like una! na edo state now very soon we will catch all of una ono by one and send una to hell where una belong...ola its on tit for tat...

PDP! The nest of killers!

PDP! The nest of killers! Anenih! Mr Fix it!

Whoever (whether PDP member or not) did this is an ENEMY of PDP

Comrade Adams Oshiomole is one of the very few Nigerian politicians that I have utmost respect for. So far he has left no one in doubt of his determination to develop Edo state. May the soul of the comrade who lost his life rest in peace. Already ALL fingers a pointing in the direction of Edo PDP. I'm not a fan of PDP but i wonder how on earth the PDP or any member of PDP thought the killing of an aide of Oshiomole will help its course. It is very STUPID, CALLOUS, INSANE and FOOLISH for the PDP to think that killing an aide of the governor, at this time when the Nigerian media is loudest and unrestrained, will promote its course. If anything this singular act (whether done by PDP or not) has dealt a FATAL blow to any chance of PDP winning the Edo June elections. If any member of PDP has a hand in the death of the gentleman, that person is an ENEMY of PDP. I'm tempted to think over zealous ACN or PDP thugs killed the gentleman. Most political thugs an illiterates &act before they think

IT IS RIGHT TIME FOR DEMOCRATIC RE-BIRTH

Hello dear Nigerians, I believe, this is the best time to give Birth to New, Good, Hopeful and Meaningful Democratic system not demo and cracy system in the Hand of Popular Deadly Party (PDP), for past good 12years now they've get their way in to loot all our today's and tommorrow's inheritance, yet they always ask for more blood when we say no to their ruling. let us say capital no to their existency.

PDP IS THE TROUBLE WITH NIGERIA

Just imagine a nation without pdp- Badluck Jonathan, obj, anenih, ibb, igbenedion, odili, atiku, reuben abati etc the country would have been a better place for all of us.

pdp can kill for anything and yet, and i have no shoe cant confront bh. Anyway, pdp cant kill the wishes of the people. They can't kill adams. Lets come together and drive pdp and all its members from this our God given land.

If the PDP actually killed the man, they must hav acted STUPIDLY

So you are implying that ESUT

So you are implying that ESUT is Nigeria's university of war? In as much as I subscribe to your position, mentioning ESUT point blank, leaves much to be desired. I am not an ESUT Aluminus, but I am a Nigerian.

PDP

All those things are the hand work of PDP, they bring nothing except trouble, and corruption. They want to intimidate the governor but they have fail. They are the one that brought Boko Haram. God's judgement will come upon all of them.

Criminals in power game

What the PDP is doing in Edo state is not new right from 1999 when they bulldozed their way to power they have demomstrated clearly that democracy is poisonous to them watch their anticidents and their victims who are mostly popular politicians from the opposition parties they will stop at nothing in their quest to grab power. Their evil deeds will catch up with them and their children they will surely pay for their crimes as long as God reigns supreme over his creation.

I support your suggestion.

I have been making similar suggestion in some other blogs I always visit. I have even discussed it with some civilian and military friends. We need a Rawlings in Nigeria now to rid us of all these 'penkelemesi' in high class corruptions, killings, kidnappings and terrorisms. Though, it may not solve all completely, however there will be some sort of discipline. Or do we need to go and wake Idiagbon up, but alas allow the man to rest peacefully. UN or no UN, once if the junta is seen not to be biased or tribalistic in their actions and rule of law is allowed to prevail, we should not mind them. After some sactions and cut in bilateral relations, they will welcome us back. All it needs is to allow rhe rule of law and fundamental human rights to prevail.

ola

Na only PDP una dey suspect? Wat of Oshiomhole, Edebiri den self no be candidate for governorship election. If una dey suspect pdp den we no go see d truth ooo. Make we listen we'll we'll before we open dat mouth wen we no dey brush dey talk any how. I dey warn o. We nor no who be next? It might be ............me or YOU.
