The governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, said contrary to what is in circulation, that he never poured acid on a fellow student as an undergraduate but rather drew the attention of the school security and took the victim for first aid treatment.
Ize-Iyamu said: “When I was in the University, I was a member of the Pirates Confraternity, he entered the University of Benin in 1980 to read political science but later changed to law and did not graduate until 1986 because of the rustication adding that he was a member of pirates confraternity while in school.
Oshiomole of the APC was campaigning for Godwin Obaseki when he made the statement. Oshiomole berated Ize-Iyamu and gave the state residents reasons why he is unfit to be elected as a governor.
Ize-Iyamu who was in PDP, is now a member of APC and Oshiomole’s anointed candidate for the state governorship election scheduled for September 19 2020.
As the election draws closer, some politicians have brought out the campaign video in which Oshiomole accused Ize-Iyamu of bathing a student with acid.
