The commissioner of police in Edo, DanMallam Muhammed, said in Benin on Monday, October 14, that the residence of Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was never attacked.
Vanguard reports that Muhammed said this while speaking with journalists in Benin, the capital of the state.
The police commissioner warned those he described as troublemakers to steer clear of the state just as he added that the law enforcement agency had beefed up security around Oshiomhole during his visit to the state.
“To the best of my knowledge, no one had access to the house of the national chairman.
"When he came into the state, we beefed up security around him, from his house to the Oba’s palace, from there to the airport before he left for Abuja.
“Let me use this medium to warn troublemakers that Edo state is very peaceful and calm. The State is the most peaceful in the south south region of Nigeria," he said.
He promised that the police would work to ensure that the peace the people of Edo state enjoy is not truncated.
