The Edo State Deputy Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Jarret Tenebe, has been arrested by the police.
Tenebe was reportedly arrested in his Ikabigbo home town in the Etsako west local government area of the state for undisclosed reasons.
However, Oyo News gathered that he was arrested on the orders of the Deputy Governor of the State, Hon. Philip Shaibu.
Tenebe is known to be a grassroots mobiliser for the APC in Edo state.
Meanwhile, at a press conference in Benin City on Tuesday, the Party had alleged that the State government planned to rig the Saturday’s State Assembly elections using thugs in various disguises.
The arrest was confirmed by the State Chairman of the Party, Col. David Imuse (rtd), and the Assistant Publicity Secretary of the APC, Ofure Osehobo, but the Police was yet to respond to enquiries.
