“You’re A Widow, Go & Die” – Governor Oshiomhole Tells A Poor Woman In Benin City

governor oshiomhole widow go die

Nov 28, 2013 – Governor Adams Oshiomhole Tells Widow To Go And Die: Edo State Gov. Cursed A Woman

You’re A Widow Go & Die” – Governor Adams Oshiomhole Tells A Crying Woman In Benin City

This is a real life story that happened in Benin city, Edo state, Nigeria.

Governor Adams recently caught a woman who disobeyed the sanitation rule for illegal hawking on the road.

When the poor woman was caught, she knelt down infront of Governor Oshiomhole pleading and crying for mercy to avoid losing her only means of livelihood.

Moments later and to everyone’s surprise, Governor Adams Oshiomhole was spotted venting angrily on the poor woman calling her all sorts of names.

The most heartbreaking statement he made was “You are a widow, go and die” as the woman continued to cry non-stop to find favour in his sight.

What could have caused him to reply in such a manner?

Since the video surfaced yesterday, the Governor of Edo State has been tagged by many as a angry and merciless man.

Governor Adams saw a woman crying for help and told her to go and die…Hmmmmm

What a cruel and oppressive statement!

Watch the video below.

For the record, Governor Adams Oshiomhole is a widower.

He lost his wife, Mrs Clara Oshiomhole to breast cancer in December 2010. She died at a clinic in Abuja at age 53.

    I knew this man had lost the plot since the last time it was reported that thieves are now to face death by hanging. The guy used to head the labour union but look at him now. He i unnecessarily heavy handed tyrant who should be voted off at the next election ( that is if the criminal elite who have a lot to lose if he is out of office allow this to happen). Yes the woman broke the rules by hawking but then should the governor’s response be so harsh? Oshiomole suffered the loss of a spouse not too far back therefore should be more sympathetic. He always presents aggressive and mean.

    If we are to build a good, better and descent society. This is not the best way to go about it… We should always establish the truth before conclude on issues like this.

    I pray that God almighty bless this beautiful woman so that she doesn’t have to kneel dawn for any human. Now for this Governor, jehovah God will reply you you told that woman to go and die because she is poor and can’t stand up to u.

    @ baba garba………..the point is not about the woman’s offence but the governor’s utterance. if you didn’t see the video, did you not read properly before you start defending the man?

    I normally don’t comment on this site but I’m very disturbed over this, How can a Governor who recently lost his wife do this to a Widow, How can this man not have mercy on a poor woman.
    Nigeria has a problem, ‘Cry my beloved Country’.

    Yes, the woman has contravened the sanitation law, but that does not call for those useless rantings of the state Governor. It clearly shows that our leaders are devilish and morally corrupt.May God give us the courage to HELP ourselves

    Am not surprise to see this, majority of our so called politicians only claim to be humble, charitable, God fearing etc only when they are contesting for one political position or the other, after being elected or maneuver to the position they will show their true colour, yes the woman offended by selling goods during sanitation period but the governor has the right to tell the woman to go and sin no more as a leader instead of telling the woman to go and die as if him the governor will leave forever, as a leader their some words (abusive)you should not use on your people no matter the offence they committed, as a leader pls lead well and remember that your tenure wil end one day, we expected you to tamper justice with mercy, please Baba Garba this thing happened in Edo not Imo, thanks

    Having watched the video, i felt ashamed that my state Governor whom ordinary working class people in the state revered and called their messiah could behave in such an inhuman way.Yes, the woman disobeyed the environmental sanitation rules but for the governor to have arrogantly and mercilessly told the widow woman to ” go and die” considering the fact that himself is a widower is unbelievable. No wonder he has been treating ishan people/ senatorial district where his wife came from with contempt and under-developed.Nigeria needs God fearing leaders and government/s with human feelings.God works in mysterious ways and i believe God will use the governor’s reproach to bless this widow because, God is the husband of widows and fatherless. God bless Edo state.

    Adams this the height of wickedness, are u a human Being or a démon?. With all that pleads and tears from dat poor woman. How would u sleep at night after such animalistic behaviour. Pls tell ur men to return her goods .Were u not thesame person lamenting few days ago that its painful to u bc ur wife was no longer à round to en joy with u?. When dat Woman mentioned widow didn’t u feel anything for d mere fact that u have been there before as a widower. God says if u make a widow to shed tears that hé will kill u and ur wife shall become a widow and ur children fatherless.

    Don,t be surprise with what this tyrant ruler Osho who call himself a Governor is doing, it has been mention in the HOLY QURAN that people like him will be lowest of the low on the day of judgement, the time is very near, he will start to feel the pain of his action from the grave soon. { A SERPENT IN HUMAN FORM }

    Why r ppl so quick in judging others when they’ve not casted out the beam in there eye. Imagine some of you here calling your fellow human all sorts of bad names bcos they commented like you did? E.g Animals, he goats, fools etc. Pls tell me, what have u ever created since you were born? Is your case not worse than that of Oshiomole? Examine yourself b4 judging others. Let every citizen abide by the guiding rules and regulations. Lobatan!

      @ Nik, do you know who is a leader, a leader is a person that show the way for his fellow people to avoid destruction. People can be messing up but it is the work of a leader to come into the screen and rescue them. Even though everybody are making such statement and propaganda doesn’t give a leader to do bcos all focus and attention is placed on HIM. That is why a leader should watch is tongue before making any statement bcos what u can say and be free doesn’t mean he will also say it and be free.

The man that called himself a patriotism human to fight and to sacrifices for Nigerian people…. if you guys could remember his campaign and rally… He almost begged by going hungry just for people to cast their vote for him…. so it is…… he has gotten it now… power is in his hand. No more being a patriotism but now a petard……!! God i pray, in your infinite mercy, please show this woman favor. Amen. We have no leader in this country again.

    the manner in which the governor reply the window or woman is uncalled for.
    Oshiomole is a radical fool that like to show off his power around and a compulsive liar and a HE goat that he is,i am among the people that voted for this man .the action i regret after watching the video and i saw that he is a heartless idiot, what he said to that woman was so touching and so sad.

    Why blaming the governor now, situation as this will only happen in Nigeria where public officials will do or say wrong things and get away with it. Were it to happen in a civilized world,it would surely cost him his job and destroys his political career as well. Public officials should always watch their utterances and control their temper. Although, the woman broke the law, he should have allow the law enforcement officials to deal with her and stay away from the picture.

    Just thinking how the world is gonna be if God is to be a man, we sinned against God and he always shown us mercy talk-less of this widow that never sin against you but still pleading for mercy. May God take control


    November 30, 2013 at 3:33 PM

    He is a heartless human being, he does not have human feeling at all but i pray that God should forgive him and also manifest himself in his life.

    Oshimole, be careful of being harsh to widow. God could revenge because matters of widows and orphans are serious before his sight. God have mercy.

    Please send me this widow’s contact details so that I can give back what that inhumane man destroyed.
