Independent Television (ITV) Intentionally Edited The Outrage Video of Oshiomhole

Military Governor, Adams Oshiomhole Caught on Camera Asking a Widow to go and Die

By Ehi Ekhator

The governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole has been accused by the people of Edo State for allegely insulting a widow who he said violated the laid down rules.

In a video released on youtube and went viral on the social media, the governor was seen confiscating the widow’s items which was found on the road side.

What sparked public outrage is the utterance made by the state governor to the pleading woman saying “if you are a widow, go and die”

Nigerians have expressed disappointment over such an utterance particularly coming out from a former NLC Chairman now a governor.

As obvious as it seems, the TV channel in Edo State, ITV intentionally edited the scene to suit the public by removing what the public called “unexpected statement for the CLAIMED man of the people”

Governor Adams Oshiomhole also sacked five of the officials who were not found on duty during the exercise. It was also discovered that members of the State War Against Indiscipline suddenly appeared .

    What are you talking about? no one said the governor wasn’t right in getting rid of those law breakers , what we are saying is the utterance of the governor, it was out of place. It was totally bad as the people’s governor he should be mindful of what he says to his people, they voted him into power, he a public servant , he serves the people, and not the other way round.

    For the widow, he would have had a little compassion in words not necessarily in action. What ITV did was OK, we need to let our people in Office know when they are wrong.

    hopefully our Governor may have learnt one or two things from this.
