Adams Oshiomhole Counter Pst Ize-Iyamu Speech "I Have Never Been Indicted In My Life"

Governor Adams Oshiomhole, has on Thursday dismissed claims by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, governorship candidate Pst Ize-Iyamu, that he had never been indicted for any crime before.
Recall that Iyamu recently said he was rusticated for being a member of the Pirate confraternity at the University of Benin, UNIBEN, and not because he poured acid on someone as it was widely insinuated.

The outgoing governor while speaking in Benin, the state capital, alleged that, Iyamu was rusticated by a panel led by Prof. Itse Sagay for two years after he bathed a student with acid.

He added that, “Ize-Iyamu said he has never been indicted in his life. And that he made his first millions when he was 31. Now I challenge him, as a student in UNIBEN, he was rusticated for two years because he poured somebody acid and today the person is paralysed.

“It was one of the President’s Advisers today, Prof.Itsey Sagay that chaired the committee that rusticated Ize-Iyamu.

On the issue of Bendel Brewery, the governor said, “We have not been able to reopen Bendel Brewery because of the huge debt the PDP left in that place. I heard Ize-Iyamu saying that they were collecting 25 Million monthly from Bendel Brewery but now as the custodian of the treasure of Edo state, I can tell you those monies went into private pockets. And by the time they left, Bendel Breweries was owing N2billion, which they borrowed and the company was closed.”

An anonymous who has a first hand information on how pst Ize Iyamu poured acid on someone explain;

Ize Iyamu pulled the front side of the student’s pajamas and poured acid into his private part. He and his Pirate friends restrained the victim from going to wash off the acid with tap water. They held him until he had maximum damage. It happened at Hall 4 in February 1984 and their victim is Dominic Ezani, also known as Domingo, and Ize Iyamu and his friends accused him of being a Malphite – another cult. Prof Abhulimen Richard Anao chaired the panel of investigation during Prof Adamu Baikie’s time as VC. Ize Iyamu was expelled initially but following the intervention of the Oba’s Palace, the punishment was commuted to two years rustication
