Nigerians have been advised to ignore the bomb scare near the premises of Edo State House of Assembly as a hoax by the Action Congress-led government in the state. This was contained in a statement by Edo State Elders Consultative Forum. The body referred to the bomb scare asÂ another “wolf cry” by Governor Adams OshiomholeÂ where there is no wolf.
â€œHe claimed that an object suspected to be a bomb was found near the premises of Edo State House of Assembly complex, just beside the state hospital mortuary. Though laughable, no one is surprised because the man is doing what he is known for, unnecessary propaganda,” the statement said.
“Since last week when Action CongressÂ members in the HouseÂ forcefully and illegally removed the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Honourable Zakawanu Garuba, and also chased the families of the PDP legislators out of their official residence, the Assembly premises has remained under lock, withÂ policemen keeping tight security there,” it said.
