The political intolerance exhibited by the Adams Oshiomhole administration in Edo state has taken a new twist as members of the road transport unions in the state are daily being molested and beaten up by the hired thugs of the outgoing government for resisting the instruction to use the stickers of a particular APC aspirant on their cars.

Taxi and bus drivers who brand their cars with the stickers of the the aspirant of the PDP, particularly frontline aspirant Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu are beaten, sometimes lynched by the thugs allegedly on the orders of the state government.

At about 2.30pm today, at Ring Road Benin city, a young Edo state resident and taxi driver, who opted to hide his name for fear of reprisal, was beaten up by thugs on the orders of Shaaba who works for the governor. His offence was that he was using the stickers of Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu instead of the stickers of another aspirant of the APC.
