Drama ensued yesterday at the popular Oliha Market in Siluko Road when angry traders most women descended heavily on a group of youngmen who stormed the market to distribute nude photographs alleged to be that of the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole.
This comes even as stakeholders continue to appeal to political gladiators in the state to ensure decorum and decency in the way and manner they go about undoing each other.
The youngmen who drove in a white tinted Jeep brought out large number of the photographers from a ghana-must-go bag which the traders initiatially mistook for money.
They were however given a hot chase and narrowly escaped being lynched by the traders upon discovery of the content of the bags to be blackmailing pictures of the Governor.
One of the traders who spoke to this Reporter in confidence and simple gave her name as Etiosa assert that the move is strange, barbaric and the height of political desperation. She re-assured the Governor whom she described as "Oshio baba, our action Governor" of their supports in the next election.
It will be recalled that the Edo State Market Women are an astute supporters of Comrade Oshiomhole. Few months ago, the women single handedly purchased the re-election nomination form for the Governor worth N5million.
