BENIN—THREE days after he was reported dead, Edo State Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, member, Minister Idaro, weekend, debunked the rumours, accusing those behind his alleged death as mischief makers.
He threatened to take legal action against Peoples Democratic Party’s candidate in the last governorship election, Gen Charles Airhiavbere, for the development.
It would be recalled that the Charles Airhiavbere Campaign Organization, CACO, in a statement by Osaze Jesurobo, identified Idaro as the man that slumped at Thursday’s sitting of the Edo State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal Benin, alleging further that he was a native doctor brought to the court by the Deputy Governor of Edo State, Dr. Pius Odubu, to engage in some diabolic acts in the court.
Idaro, who spoke from his village in Urhomehe in Orhiomnwon Local Government Council of Edo State, said he was nowhere near the Tribunal on Thursday nor had he been to the Tribunal before, let alone being sponsored to go and perform voodoo there by the Deputy Governor, Dr Pius Odubu.
