The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has denied issuing an arrest warrant for Managing Director (MD) of BUA's Obu Cement Company, Engineer Yusuf Binji.
This contradicts claims by the Edo State government; soon after an alleged attacked on the convoy of Governor Godwin Obaseki on Thursday, the government issued a press statement claiming that the police has ordered the arrest of Engr. Binji for complicity in the attack.
In the report which went viral in the print and online media, the State government claimed that the police declared Binji wanted.
However, Police Force Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Jimoh Moshood, denied the state government's claims, stating that there had been no such directive from the police either at the State or Federal command.
Moshood said Engr. Binji has not been declared a person of interest by the police, in respect of the alleged attack on Governor Obaseki's convoy.
Police rebuttal of the government's claims absolves Binji of complicity in the alleged attack.
