The Benin office of Independent Television and Radio belonging to a Benin Billionaire Gabriel Igbenedion was burnt to the ground on Saturday, March 7.
The cause of the fire has not yet been visible but Igbinedion’s daughter, Omosede has expressed the belief to City People that it was the work of arsonists. She said:
“It is clear that the attack on ITV is purely sabotage, a calculated attempt,”
Meanwhile, Omosede is contesting for the Ovia Federal Constituency seat at the House of Representatives on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
More details on the news will be posted much later..
