Governor Adams Oshiomhole says contrary to the claims of the PDP Governorship Candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu that he has never been indicted for any crime, that the PDP candidate was allegedly rusticated by a panel led by Prof. Itse Sagay, the head of President Muhammadu Buhari’s Advisory committee on Anti corruption for two years after he allegedly bathed a fellow student with acid at the University of Benin, UNIBEN.
It would be recalled that Ize-Iyamu in an online interview said he was rusticated for being a member of the Pirate confraternity at the University of Benin then and not because he bathed some body with acid.
However, Oshiomhole who spoke at the mega rally of the APC, to round up the governorship campaign of the APC Candidate, Mr Godwin Obaseki, said: “Ize-Iyamu said he has never been indicted in his life. And that he made his first millions when he was 31. Now I challenge him, as a student in UNIBEN, he was rusticated for two years because he poured somebody acid and today the person was paralysed.
It was one of the President’s Advisers today, Prof.Itsey Sagay that chaired the committee that rusticated Ize-Iyamu. On the issue of Bendel Brewery, Oshiomhole narrated: “We have not been able to reopen Bendel Brewery because of the huge debt the PDP left in that place. I heard Ize-Iyamu saying that they were collecting N25million monthly from Bendel Brewery but now as the custodian of the treasure of Edo state, I can tell you those monies went into private pockets. And by the time they left, Bendel Breweries was owing N2billion, which they borrowed and the company was closed.
