Godwin Obaseki, governor of Edo State, has said his predecessor and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Adams Oshiomhole was behaving with impunity.
The governor noted that as courtesy demands, Oshiomhole should have informed the state government of any of his visit.
Oshiomhole, who was in Bénin City at the weekend to attend the funeral ceremony of late Cecilia Agbonyinma, mother of Hon Ehiozuwa Agbonyinma, was booed at the Bénin Airport by some APC youths.
His convoy was pelted with empty water can as heavy security presence at the airport barred the youths from getting close to the convoy.
The road leading to Oshiomhole’s residence was barricaded by two trucks even though one of the trucks was later set ablaze.
It was gathered that the barricade was to prevent any political meetings from holding at Oshiomhole’s residence.
Security was later beefed up around the house to forestall any attacks at night.

Speaking to newsmen about the airport incident, Obaseki said Oshiomhole should have informed the state government about his visit to the state.
He spoke when he played host to former President Goodluck Jonathan who paid him a private visit.
The Governor said: “The former President is just extending the courtesy as the President, someone who has served the country in the highest level and you heard what he said.
“There is a courtesy when you are going to visit a state, you want to inform the person in charge of the state that you are coming and when you have time during a visit, you can now pay him a courtesy call.
“Unlike the unfortunate incident, we have been having in Edo State. It is really sad where somebody who had been the governor of a state visiting the state and does not realise that courtesy demands that he should inform the governor or the governor apparatus of his visit and the chief executive in charge of his security when he is in the state.
“It is really sad and unfortunate that people who have served, who should know better decided to behave the way they do or behave with impunity and other sense of lawlessness.”
