Benin-Auchi Road: Governor Obaseki Begs Military to Take Over

Published

Governor Obaseki - Edo State Governor

Edo State Governor, Governor Godwin Obaseki, appealed to the Nigerian Military to take over by setting up a military-base in crime-prone areas in the state, especially on the Benin-Auchi road axis.

Governor Obaseki made the appeal while hosting the Chief of Army Staff (COAS), Farouk Yahaya, who led other senior officers on a courtesy visit to Edo Government House on Tuesday.

We are having security challenges in the state such as kidnapping, especially between the Benin–Auchi axis. We have military formations in Edo South, also Auchi and Agenegbode, both in Edo North Senatorial District,” said the governor. “Because the 120 kilometres spaces between them do not have any military presence, it has been difficult for the military to respond either from the South or North when there is an incident.

He told the Army Chief that his administration would provide the military with “all necessary support” if Mr Yahaya acceded to his request.

While I beg the Nigerian Army to heed our request, the state government will give all necessary support if the army can consider setting up a forward operating base between the distance of the North and South senatorial districts,” Governor Obaseki further explained. “This will help us cover the axis where we are beginning to experience a lot of kidnappings and robbery incidents.”

Though the “4 Brigade has been very helpful in supporting our communities in crisis,” the governor also requested a “special squad to support our efforts in calming the restiveness we are seeing around communities.”

The governor added, “We have laws in place that will help us deal with these issues. But by the time some of these communities find out that we now also have heavily armed military personnel within their communities, peace will return to such areas.”

His exemption from the alleged Criminal offense, is a prelude to the Autopsy Confirmation results carried out by the Edo State Police Command to detect the real cause of her death.

Recall that, the Awaiting Traditional

However, addressing Journalists in Benin City, the state Police Command Image maker SP Kontongs Bello, said, after a thorough investigation as well as Autopsy Conducted and provided by a Police consultant Pathologist, Dr. W.O Akhiwu, the result proved the suspect innocent.

The autopsy Conducted on September 20, 2021, by Police consultant Pathologist, Dr. W.O Akhiwu, attributed the cause of her death to Hemorrhagic Shock, Ruptured Tubal Ectopic and Massive Hemoperitoneum Conditions.

According to medical experts, Hemorrhagic shock is a condition of reduced tissue perfusion, resulting in the inadequate delivery of oxygen and nutrients that are necessary for cellular function.

Therefore, whenever cellular oxygen demand outweighs supply, both the cell and the organism are in a state of shock.

An ectopic pregnancy can cause Fallopian tubes in women to burst or rupture. Emergency symptoms are believed to include major pain, with or without severe bleeding.

So, in Hemoperitoneum Conditions, blood is expected to accumulate in peritoneal cavity, a small area of space located between internal abdominal organs and inner abdominal wall.

26-year-Old Deceased Victim, Faith Osamudiamen Aigbe, a resident of
Aigbe Street Evbuomoma Quarters, Benin City, was accused by his suspected Boyfriend, and Enogie designate, Ogierhiakhi Friday to have been nine months pregnant for him until she gave up after allegedly undergoing abortion in undisclosed hospital without his consent.
