A hotelier, Tony Adun popularly known as Tony Kabaka, has vowed to die if the Edo State Government carried out its threat to demolish his hotel.

Tony was engaged by Comrade Adams Oshiomhole administration to collect taxes from drivers.

He and other private revenue contractors were sacked by Governor Godwin Obaseki who insisted the state government has her ability to collect its revenue.

Edo State Government had earlier said it would commence demolition of illegal structures erected on government property, including public schools and waterways as well as roof eave-extensions and structures erected on the right of way of roads/streets, moats, river banks, TCN high tension lines, among others in Benin City and other major settlements in the state.

It said the exercise was to address the challenge incessant cases of flooding in urban centres adding that the cost of such action would be recovered from the violators in a law court of competent jurisdiction.

Tony who issued the threat of death after he was given seven days to remove his ‘illegal structure.’ said he was targeted because he refused to support Governor Obaseki’s second term bid.

He used unprintable words on Governor Obaseki in a viral video.

Responding to his allegations, Special Adviser to Governor Obaseki on Media and Communication Strategy, Mr. Crusoe Osagie, said the hotel was erected on a primary school land.

Osagie said there would be no sacred cow in the exercise as all those affected have been served or where being served. (The Nation)
