Former Chief of General Staff, Admiral Mike Akhigbe, has condemned the killing of three persons in a clash between supporters of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP and those of Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, in his home town, Fugar, and called on the Inspector General of Police to fish out the killers.

Admiral Akhigbe, who described the killing as a taboo, “because an Avianwu clan person cannot shed the blood of a fellow Avianwu,” condemned what he described as the “show of power by incessant arrest of opposition candidates and taking them to Abuja instead of Benin City,” he told Vanguard, weekend, while reacting to the killings and burning of houses and cars in Fugar, after ACN and PDP youths clashed ahead the next Saturday’s local government elections in the state.

ACN chairmanship candidate, Emmanuel Momoh, was arrested and whisked to Abuja, allegedly on the orders of the Inspector General of Police. Consequently, ACN leaders in the area accused the Chief of Staff to the President, Chief Mike Oghiadohme, who also is from the area, of masterminding the arrest.

But Akhigbe, who warned the police to stop being used by desperate politicians, said: “I was also told that the PDP chairmanship candidate in the area brought militants to cause trouble in my area.” [Vanguard]
