Declare state of emergency in Kogi - Dino Melaye urges senate

Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye on Tuesday urged the Senate to declare a State of Emergency in Kogi State.

According him, the governor of the state, Yahaya Bello had sent his killer squad to attack him when he was addressing supporters on Monday.

He added that some of his supporters were injured during the attack.

“Mr. President, distinguished colleagues, you will agree with me that Yahaya Bello’s killer squad who were harbored in government house invaded with shooting for 30 minutes until one of them was killed with wounded persons on my own side,” he said.

Dino asserted that there was obvious anarchy in Kogi, urging the declaration of emergency.

“You will recall that a bus belonging to administrator of Lokoja local government loaded with arms and ammunition exploded when it was set on fire at the venue, so boys have been armed against the State,” he added.

Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu urged security agents to handle the the situation in a professional manner.
