Oshiomhole again! ‘I called the Igbinedions thieves and they’ve not denied it’

Edo State Governor Adams Oshiomhole says he’s not afraid of the Esama of Benin Kingdom, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion and his son, former Governor Lucky Igbinedion.
Oshiomhole also reiterated his claim that father and son looted the state’s coffers and also converted government properties for personal use.
The governor spoke in Benin on Monday, when thousands of women in white attire marched on the streets, demanding an apology from Chief Igbinedion to the residents.
Addressing the women, Oshiomhole said he would be ashamed to speak in public, if two of his children were convicted for corruption and money laundering.
He said: “Chief Igbinedion and his son dragged the Oba (of Benin) to court. Have you forgotten? If an old man is a thief and I called him a thief, did I disgrace him?
“They are putting your money in their pockets and they say they are rich. They sold government houses to themselves.
“Should I be quiet to what is wrong? I only reveal what they stole in government and they have not denied it. I will not respect a thief. I will not worship a thief, if everybody else worships the thief.”
