A decision the deputy governor, who has not hidden his aspiration to succeed Gov. Oshiomhole has been challenging, it was reported that the governor accused Dr. Odubu of paying a witch doctor to kill him at a parley organised by All Progressive Congress(APC) leaders to broker peace between them.

But in a statement released by Dr. Odubu’s chief press secretary on Monday he denied the claim credited to Gov. Oshiomhole.

The statement reads in part: “As a practicing Catholic, Dr Odubu will not do anything that is unbecoming of a true Christian in the name of politics. God knows that he has never had any pact with any witch/native doctor to kill anyone or avenge for him and he will never condescend to that extent.”
