My life in danger, says Obaseki’s ex-CoS

A former Chief of Staff to Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State, Taiwo Akerele, on Sunday cried out that his life is in danger following the invasion of his residence at 1st Ugbor Road in Benin GRA by men of the Department of State Services.

The DSS men invaded the residence of Akerele around 5pm and arrested his Personal Assistant, Jaspa Olowojoba, the security man and other domestic staff in the residence.

Akerele, who confirmed the incident on the telephone said his street was cordoned off by the DSS men who came in one 18-seater bus and three vehicles of Operation Wabaizigan.

“They cordoned off my street, arrested all my personal staff, my security man and took away all my children’s birth certificates. They sealed my house, my life is under threat. I said I have resigned and that I shared his vision and I am still with him politically, so what else do they want from me?” he said.

But reacting, the Edo State Commissioner for Information, Mr Paul Ohonbamu, accused Akerele of attempting to blackmail the governor, saying having accepted his resignation and appointed a new CoS, Obaseki had moved on and had nothing to benefit from attacking Akerele.
Ohonbamu said,

“He is the least of our worry; no one is bothered about him; the governor has moved on. To say that the governor is after him is sheer falsehood and blackmail and it shows the kind of character we are dealing with.”
