With just 3 days to the Kogi state governorship elections, The All Progressive Congress (APC) has accused Dino Melaye, who was the former senator representing Kogi West of plotting to Kidnap the chairman of Kabba/Bunu, Elisha Mosunle.
According to Vanguard, APC discovered a plot by Melaye to intimidate and kidnap some of their members to help pave way for his election
Legit reported that APC identified Mosunle as well as other members who were allegedly on Melaye’s hit list.
They identified Sunday Ampitan, Fobu Ibramoh, Ariyo Adebayo, Olusco among other people.
According to APC, Melaye had secretly hired some gang member to help carry out the act.
APC said Melaye vowed to match the ruling party boot for boot and secure his victory by any means possible.
According to the report, Melaye has, however, refuted the allegation. He said the APC was indirectly talking about their plans for the election.
Spokesperson from APC said, “Sources close to the embattled former senator revealed the meetings he held in Aiyetoro and Akutupa Kiri overnight with some PDP leaders in the area where they have marked some prominent APC leaders and followers to be kidnapped, tortured and even killed to enable them to have a smooth sail at the poll.
“He was seeing boasting at the meeting that he is not a newcomer in the field of politics hence he is battle-ready to use the bad boys to win the election. He assured his people not to panic as many strange faces will be seen around him that will work for his victory,”
“The Sienna buses which have been seen around Okun land after their campaign rallies in Kabba and other communities have been terrorizing the area to instill unnecessary fears by harassing and intimidating the residents. There have been sporadic gunshots in and around Kabba metropolis for more than 5 days now. “We urge the security agency in Kabba to investigate the activities of the occupant of those buses and possibly call Dino Melaye to order as he may not have the strength to dance to the war songs he is singing,”
