A notorious political thug Tony Kabaka hyped Adams Oshiomhole in an interview, but that is not the greatest blow from what was said.
When it comes to headlines news from Edo State, it doesn’t get much better than a well-known Nigerian black axe confraternity (aiye cult group) member saying “I was nothing before, Oshiomhole did it for me” an Ex-Governor of Edo State, and former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress who was seen as someone he had been particularly close to.
It’s an even more succulent headline when the two heads are Adams Oshiomhole and Tony Kabaka, who everyone either loves or loves to hate, without much emotionlessness or public opinion in between, in either their own state or around the country.
But that ‘hyped’ we mentioned above is not what will have the blow from what Kabaka said about Oshiomhole in an interview with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in a documentary concentrating on the Black Axe Confraternity popularly known as aiye cult group.
In the interviews, Kabaka express his gratitude that Oshiomhole was the man behind his multi-billion naira assets in Benin city.
