He said it was shameful for such an attack to take place at the residence of the National Chairman of the ruling party in the state.
Obaseki said in quotes: “It is very unfortunate that we can’t feel safe in the house of our National Chairman.
“I am not sure that if I visit the Chairman of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) that they will attack me the way they did in the house of the APC National Chairman.
“It is unfortunate that things have degenerated to this extent. But we will continue to pursue peace. We cannot afford to lose the gains of the last three years. We will continue to pursue peace.”
