“The assignment is to come and assassinate some known individuals in the state.

I am hereby bringing to the notice of the general public that these people are in town. We have informed the security agencies about their activities and why they are in town.

We also call on President Muhammadu Buhari to urge security agencies to do their work.

“Edo is not going to be a theatre of war if these issues are addressed. For us, we will continue to appeal to our people not to disrupt the prevailing peace in the state. We are law-abiding people; we have a duty to protect lives and property.”
