The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, arrived his country home, Benin City, the Edo State capital, on Saturday amidst tight security details.

According to reports, there might be an attack from a section of the state over the ongoing feud between the Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, and his erstwhile godfather, Oshiomhole.

Soldiers were said to be stationed at the airport entrance gate while other officials of the Department of State Security Service (DSS), as well as the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), were spotted around the city.

The national chairman’s allies, including Dr Pius Odubu, General Charles Airhiavbere, Samson Osagie and APC chieftains loyal to the former governor, were around to receive him at the airport.

Some young die-hard fans of Oshiomhole were also seen clustered around the city to give him a historic welcome.
