Recall that Governor Obaseki described the failed invasion of the Edo state House of Assembly Complex as an attempted coup d’état that is as good as treason and contrary to the Nigerian Constitution.

He, however, assured the people of Edo state that his administration will take all steps necessary to defend the rule of law and democratic ideals.
