Odili: You assaulted my reputation, Oshiomhole tells Wike

• Demands apology
National chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has denied involvement in the protest and attacks on the residence of the Supreme Court Judge, Justice Mary Odili in Abuja.

The Rivers State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr. Paulinus Nsirim, in a statement, had alleged that the APC chairman and the Minister of State for Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva, were the masterminds of the attack.

Tribune Online checks revealed that Mary Odili was the head of the five-man panel of the apex court in the judgment delivered by Justice Ejembi Ekwo which declared that Biobarakuma Degi-Eremienyo who was running mate to the APC candidate in last November governorship election, David Lyon presented forged certificates to INEC.

The apex court last Friday subsequently voided the mandate of the APC. But Oshiomhole in a statement signed by his media aide, Simon Ebegbulem described the allegation raised by the rivers state government as malicious.

While exonerating himself, the APC chairman said the allegation cast aspersions on his reputation.

Oshiomhole who noted that his party has since made recourse to the apex court to demand a review of its judgment on Bayelsa further argued that the party believes in the civilized way of approaching the judiciary to state its grievances and would not in any way resort to self-help.
