The women were protesting in the Edo State capital, over what they described as alleged insult on the father of a former governor of the state, Chief Gabriel Igbinedion, by Oshiomhole.
The governor had last week accused the former governor, Lucky Igbinedion, of unlawfully allocating 200,000 hectares of government land to his father, the Esama of Benin Kingdom who allegedly collected “royalties” from them.
Oshiomhole had said:
“These cocoa farmers will farm and sweat to grow their cocoa on government land, Igbinedion will sit in his house on which he is not paying ground rent and is collecting royalties.
Is Igbinedion the Oba of Benin?”
The aggrieved women, who also carried placards with various anti-government inscriptions and were clad in red attires, marched round the popular Ring Road before making their way to the Edo State House of Assembly.
