Our heritage reporter gathered that Less than 48 hours before the Edo State House of Assembly (EDHA) election, the state Deputy Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Jarret Tenebe, was arrested allegedly on the orders of the deputy governor of Edo state Hon Philip Shaibu.
Tenebe was said to have been arrested in his Ikabigbo home town, Etsako West local government area for undisclosed reasons.
It was learnt that the Edo APC Vice Chairman, a popular mobilizer for the APC and strong loyalist of the former state governor Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, had allegedly in a recent video accused the deputy governor of sundry issues.
