Is Edo State prisons made for animals? Who are you to decide for Edo South Bini people who leads them? A lot of people with great minds have been into prisons and out including our former president, this current president and back home here a former attorney general of Edo State has equally being there………….so, why all this threats of amending my charges presently under prosecution at Oredo Magistrate court 4 in Benin? Is it so that I will be silenced in prison until after the APC governorship primaries coming up in June, 2016? My names remain -Curtis Eghosa Ugbo and I am a son of the great Benin Kingdom and I am not moved by threats of going to prison at all because I am too rugged and dogged for that……..think of something else please!!!
“My grandfather used to tell me that when a man decides to fight with his own cloths (agbada) in public he will dance naked” Let it be known to those purporting that threat of my incarceration in Benin prison that this matter has already been sent across (documented) to the human rights organizations and the international criminal court for violence against humanity awaiting when the dial will be casted. I am also aware of the cooked stories to smear my good name in the form of fliers and sms that is being circulated around by those that see my right to support an aspirant of my choice as a war against their personal interest. Let it also be known to them that if anything should happen to me and my immediate family………….they’re liable and justice must prevail. I patiently await the amendment of the charges come 29th April, 2016……The licensed double barrel gun found in my home is not illegal except they are wanting to prove the licensing authority of the Nigeria Police who gave me the license otherwise, wrong or illegal………… You better go and beg God for your forgiveness before begging any man………………..
I am Curtis Eghosa Ugbo and I just want my Edo South Bini people to be liberated from this bondage of autocracy from a man who claims to preach democracy (one man one vote)!!! So I am now a Prisoner of Conscience in my State abi? I dey vex oh!!!
