Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole has said that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu was rusticated from the University of Benin for pouring acid on a fellow student.
Oshiomhole made the comment in reactions to Ize-Iyamu’s claim that he had never been charged for any crime.
“Ize-Iyamu said he has never been indicted in his life. And that he made his first millions when he was 31. Now I challenge him, as a student in UNIBEN, he was rusticated for two years because he poured somebody acid and today the person was paralyzed,” Oshiomhole said according to Vanguard.
“It was one of the President’s Advisers today, Prof Itse Sagay that chaired the committee that rusticated Ize-Iyamu.
“I heard Ize-Iyamu saying that they were collecting N25million monthly from Bendel Brewery but now as the custodian of the treasure of Edo state, I can tell you those monies went into private pockets. And by the time they left, Bendel Breweries was owing N2billion, which they borrowed and the company was closed,” Oshiomhole added.
Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has said that the Edo governorship election will hold on September 10 as scheduled despite calls to postpone it.
