Recall that youths and women comprising mainly of members of Ibieguaeoba and Idibonerie respectively, yesterday staged a protest over the alleged assault.
Multiple sources told THEWILL that Osakpamwam, who has also been suspended as Youth Leader of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) by the party in the state had gone to Chief Osula’s residence to ask him why his sons led a protest against him when they had no direct involvement in the matter.
An eyewitness said Osakpamwan had told Chief Osula that he had the protection of the state governor Comrade Adams Oshiomhole and that his sons had no idea what they had gotten themselves involved in by leading a protest against him.
An argument soon started and Osakpamwan allegedly shot five persons killing two of his
Multiple sources say he has gone underground to evade arrest.
Comrade Adams Oshiomhole had gone to the Palace of the Oba of Benin, Omo N'Oba, N'Edo Uku Akpolokplolo, Oba Erediauwa, to plead and apologise for the assault on the prince but the angry Oba had told him to bring Osakpamwan to justice.
The Oba was said to have poured his anger on the governor for giving Osakpamwan the leverage to assault the Palace and warned that he must be apprehended and disciplined accordingly.
A visibly distraught Oshiomhole was said to have left the palace feeling very low.
