Gov. Obaseki Gives Order To Arrest John Mayaki His Former CPS

Mr. Godwin Obaseki, Governor of Edo state has ordered the arrest of John Mayaki, his former chief press secretary (CPS).

Mayaki who is a Prince from Igarra royal family, was the first Acting Chief Press Secretary to Obaseki at the inception of his administration.He however left under unclear circumstances.

Special Adviser to Governor Obaseki on Media and Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie said “the Police in Edo state weekend contacted the family of John Mayaki in Akoko-Edo local government area, through High Chief J.M. Akpeji, the Otu of Igarra, to submit their son to the police custody failing which the nonagenarian would be arrested.

“The Otu told journalists that one police officer who identified himself as DSP Moses Nkombe, called my line to demand that I submit my son to their custody on the orders of the state Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki but unfortunately, I am unable to get hold of my son, as he was still out of the country in pursuit of education.”

A source in the palace of the Otu of Igarra who spoke on condition of anonymity, further added that “the police officer went ahead to send John Mayaki’s phone number to his father, telling him to reach his son with the number and compel him to return to the state, threatening to arrest the frail old man if he fails to engineer his son’s return to the country.”
