Police arrest 3 over arson at PDP Headquarters

The Edo State Police Command has arrested three suspected cultists in connection with Tuesday’s shooting at the Peoples Democratic party (PDP) secretariat in the Egor Local Government Area of the state.

The incident has been linked to one Olaye, who is believed to be a major actor in the crisis.

The embattled Chairman of the party in the Local Government, Chief Idehen Ekundayo, had petitioned Edo State Commissioner of police, alleging threat to his life.

He also alleged in the petition that he lost valuable items including his beads worth N700,000, stolen by hoodlums, over a crisis caused by a battle for control in the State Chapter ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Spokesman of the police in the state, Superintendent of Police Kotongs Bello said no life was lost during the melee, but police recovered ammunitions from one of the suspects.

He revealed the identities of the suspected cultists as Mr. Enofe Maris (38), Mr. Efosa Ezomo (43), and one Mr. Ikpomwonsa (50).

Kotongs assured the suspects would be charged to court when investigation is
