Jarret Tenebe, the state deputy chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was arrested allegedly on the deputy governor of Edo state Hon. Philip Shaibu’s orders less than 48 hours before the EDHA election.
According to reports, Tenebe was apprehended at his hometown of Ikabigbo, Etsako West local government area, for unclear reasons.
It was discovered that the Edo APC Vice Chairman, a well-known APC mobilizer and ardent supporter of the outgoing state governor Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, purportedly made the accusations against the deputy governor in a recent video.
In a press conference in Benin City on Tuesday, the APC alleged that the state government planned to rig Saturday’s election, using thugs in various disguises.
