Angry Nigerians, disappointed entertainers condemn Gov Oshiomhole for maltreating a widow and telling her, "go and die"

Edo gov, Oshiomhole
Power intoxicates and absolute power leads to executive recklessness in this part of the world, especially among those we have (s)elected to rule over us. Millions of Nigerians, including entertainers are angry and disappointed with the so called comrade governor of Edo State, Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole for aggravating the poverty and pains of a poor widow by seizing  her less than N2000 goods and telling her, "go and die" like her late husband, during a recent inspection tour.
The Youtube video, which has gone viral, has shown the world the true side of Oshiomhole and how mean he could be while dealing ruthlessly with his defenceless citizens, who incidentally trooped out to elect him into office.
Some leading entertainers who spoke with us on the condition of anonymity berated the governor for openly seizing the wares of a widow, despite her several cries and pleas.
"Oshiomhole has derailed and lost focus. If he can do this openly to a widow, you can then imagine what he is capable of doing to his political opponents," stated a top actor.
Felix Umoru, an indigene of Edo State, who also shared his pains with us on how the governor compounded the pains of a poor widow, described Oshiomhole as power drunk and very unforgiven. "No past governor in the history of our State, can do and had done this to a widow. Oshiomhole got most of the votes that saw him into office from widows, look at how he's treating them now. He's a big disgrace and has completely rubbished the office of a governor. It also hurts that a widower like him is happy maltreating a widow because he's in power... What a shame."

Gentlemen of the Press,

 it is with pleasure that I meet with you once again to rob minds on the political developments in our dear state. Not long ago, while bemoaning the orchestrated plots to throw the state chapter of our party, the PDP into crisis by those we describe as inside outsiders lead by Gov. Chibuike Ameachi who had long been suspended along with some of his cohorts, we told you that it will not be long before they openly admit what they have been doing in secret even, though denying all this while.

You were also informed of how Gov. Amaechi was using the resources of Rivers State to lubricate his vice presidential ambition which informed his stiff opposition to
President Goodluck Jonathan and everything Mr. President stood for.
