Abubakar Malami, the minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation has ordered the Inspector General of Police to provide security for the 17 Edo All Progressives Congress Lawmakers.

In a letter dated August 5, 2020, based on a petition to his office by Idahosa-West Chambers, Malami said the security measure is necessary to prevent breakdown of law and order.

The 17 lawmakers backing All Progressives Congress, APC, Governorship candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, have been locked in a battle to access the Edo Assembly complex on Ring Road, Benin with seven lawmakers loyal to Governor Godwin Obaseki.
