Hell was let loose at the Action Congress of Nigeria
(ACN) state secretariat along Airport road, Benin City, when the youths of Egor/Ikpoba Okha Local Government Area stormed the premises to protest against the aspiration of Hon. Crosby Eribo
Eribo, the chairman of the local government, who is aspiring to represent Egor/Ikpoba Okha in the Federal House of Representatives, was beaten to a state of coma by the aggrieved youths.
The chairman was however lucky to have been rescued by a team of mobile policemen who arrived 20minutes later.
The chairman who was left in the pool of his
blood was later taken to an unknown hospital for treatment.
The youths who were chanting war songs in their hundreds complained bitterly to the leadership of ACN
in the state that Hon. Crosby Eribo
had brought untold hardship to the people of Egor for the past three years he
has been at the helm of affairs at the council.
One of the leaders of the protesting youths who gave his
name as Nowamagbe John said: "My brother, just come and visit the nooks and crannies of Egor and you would not see any single developmental project done by Eribo
channels erosion to everybody's house.
Today, over 10 people have abandoned their buildings because of the singular act of this chairman who has caused us untold hardship.
We cannot fold our hands to see that this same man, who is feeding on our blood, will come again to tell us that he
is contesting election.
Over our dead bodies!
We will not allow it!
is a political armed robber.
