Barely 24 hours after the Oba of Benin, Ewuare II called on the Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki and Ize-Iyamu to embrace peace ahead of the September 19 gubernatorial election, thugs carried a mock coffin to PDP secretariat and set it on fire.
In a video making rounds online, the thugs can be seen causing obstruction in the busy Akpapava Road in Benin City, where the PDP secretariat is located.
Two men on a black attire dropped the coffin in front of the place, set it ablaze and heightened tension in the area.
Their actions totally violates what the Oba of Benin is clamouring for.
Oba Ewuare had summoned the two major candidates, Obaseki of PDP and Ize-Iyamu of the APC, to sign a peace pact ahead of the election.
He expressed his concern on the incessant nuisance and violence in the state, saying he has been having sleepless nights and has held countless number of prayers for peace in the course of the electioneering.
The reverend monarch went further to urge the politicians, especially the candidates to send the message of peace to their supporters.
With what the thugs did yesterday, September 4, 2020 at the PDP secretariat, it goes a long way to show that youths will never learn. They keep allowing themselves to be used by these politicians while their kids are enjoying in their luxury homes.
