The senator representing Kogi West senatorial district, Sen. Dino Melaye, has accused All Progressives Congress (APC) thugs of attacking his campaign train in Odokoro, Ijumu Local Goverment Area of Kogi State.
The senator said this in a post on his Instagram page on Tuesday afternoon.
Melaye, who was elected on the platform of APC in 2015, defected to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2018.
He also shared a video of the alleged attack and captured it: “APC thugs in Odokoro attacking my campaign train.”
The police recently accused Melaye of attempted culpable homicide of a police officer.
The senator’s initial refusal to submit himself for questioning over the matter led to an eighth-day siege on his home in the Maitama area of Abuja.
