Edo south Senator, Mathew Urhoghide has opened up on the recent attack on him by Thugs after he moved a motion for President Muhammadu Buhari’s Impeachment.
Urhogide told newsmen on Saturday that he had no regrets for moving the motion adding that Taiwo Akerele, the chief of staff to Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state, was responsible for mobilizing the Thugs that attacked him at an airport on Friday.
“They have promised to deal with me. If not for the State Commissioner of Police who restrained them. I obeyed the Police Commissioner and remained where I was until the governor came.
We were walking side by side, talking when a boy hit my head and the governor walked away. Before I left Abuja, I knew what was happening and the person responsible for it. I called him to tell him that it was unnecessary but he didn’t pick his calls.
It would be cowardice for me to abort the journey. I wanted to see what would happen and they displayed their thuggery. I am not cowed by it. I will represent my constituency and do whatever I want to do. Those who beat the PDP State Youth leader were not arrested but he was arrested.
If this game is not played along the direction that some people want it, then they see you as a deviant. That is what you saw yesterday, asking a riff-raff, a boy of no consequence, to lay his hands on me, an elected representative of the people, a serving Senator, it is a shame on this country.
They should realise I am a PDP senator. I am in the opposition; I am not a member of the APC. I am at liberty to say anything against the APC government. I am just being objective.”
