In a press statement, Chief Orbih Said ‘

This Statement is most unfortunate and sad. The attack was carried out by State Actors and one of my lawyers was abducted. And I issued and signed a Statement to that effect. I WILL NOT say what I cannot prove. My lawyer’s life was in grave danger. Her escape was miraculous. All our court processes were seized and destroyed by State Officials. Court officials had to run for their dear lives. All this was done to frustrate the further prosecution of our Appeal. I seize this opportunity to thank the Chairman of the NBA Benin Branch, who promptly and appropriately condemned the attack on the Court of Appeal. It took the Government more than 48 hours after the occurrence of the incident to issue this extremely provocative Statement. We stand by our earlier statement to the effect that the attack was perpetrated by State actors. Chief Ferdinand Oshioke Orbih,SAN. My lawyers were victims of state inspired thuggery yesterday at the Court of Appeal. Some miscreants desecrated the temple of justice. They were filing processes against the judgment obtained at the Edo State Governor’s faction of the PDP in a pre-election matter. I escaped the attack by the whiskers. I had barely driven out of the Court of Appeal premises when they struck. A female colleague who was protecting the processes was abducted. She later escaped leaving the processes with the thugs and State actors.Chief Ferdinand Oshioke Orbih,SAN
