The Founder of One Love Foundation and social activist, Chief Patrick Eholor, has said he would drag the executive governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki to court over insecurity in the state.

According to Eholor the residents of Edo State now live in fear of armed robbery, kidnapping and cult clashes. Adding that Benin, the capital of Edo state was never as unsecured as it is currently.

Eholor who issued the statement yesterday demanded that the governor should make Edo state peaceful and attractive for investors. He also said the people should be provided with jobs.

“Nigerians should know their rights, especially my Edo people. If anybody is killed or kidnapped again in Edo State, I will sue the Governor because he collects security votes.

“So I will ask him (Obaseki) what he is using the security votes for, because it is a constitutional matter, very clear that the government is supposed to protect us as citizens.

“Edo as a State is now being hijacked by hoodlums who have continued to operate freely as robbers, kidnappers or cultist.

“People are being robbed on daily basis, Point Of Sale, POS, operators, market women at various quarters, drivers and passengers are left to their fate.

“We have never had it bad like this as a State.

“All we want is a safe Edo State where investors can come in and do business any day and anytime.

“We need jobs to be created for our teeming youths. Politics aside, the Governor should do better.”
