ThankGod was reportedly shot in the early hours of Tuesday outside his home in less than 24 hours when his brother testified against Governor Godwin Obaseki in an ongoing trial in Abuja is recuperating in an undisclosed medical facility.
Besides, the witness, Engr. Iduseri told reporters that he has been receiving series of threat calls after his testimony in court.
Responding, the APC Caretaker Committee Chairman, Col. David Imuse (Rtd) said, “Engr. Gabriel Iduseri who is one of our witnesses and who testified at the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja yesterday over a case of forgery and perjury preferred against Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state, had his brother, Mr. ThankGod Iduseri shot this morning. This is quite unfortunate.
“I think there’s absolutely no place in the marketplace of ideas for threats of violence against any person, especially those with divergent political belief”.
According to Imuse, “Disagreement on political issues should not lead to acts of violence. We call on Nigerians to roundly condemn this dastardly act and urge the security agencies to bring the perpetrators to book.”
Meanwhile, Lawyer to the All Progressives Congress (APC), Olujimi said that the testimony of the witness further proved their case against Obaseki as Justice Ahmed Mohammed adjourned further hearing till January 5, to enable the governor and the PDP open their defence.
