Oshiomhole’s N30b project probe: Obaseki moves vital document over arson report


Barely 24 hours after promising to probe the N30 billion Benin Storm Water project initiated by the administration of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the Edo State Government has relocated vital documents in the probe to safe house over possible arson.

An announcement signed by the Secretary to the State Government Osarodion Ogie Esq. stated that this was due to the intelligence report received after Governor Godwin Obaseki made the statement on investigating the storm water project which according to him was a fraud.

The statement read: “Following the commitment of the Edo State Government to probe the N30 billion Benin stormwater project, the state received intelligence of a possible arson at the offices of the Ministry of Environment and Sustainability, which houses vital documents on the project.

“The government immediately deployed security operatives to guard the premises of the Ministry overnight to protect its assets.

“We have successfully evacuated these vital documents to a safe location to ensure their integrity and in readiness of a probe.

“We will do right by Edo people as always and work assiduously to ensure that our people get value for our money as regards the execution of the N30 billion stormwater project”. Ogie added.
