Senator Dino Melaye has called on Acting President Yemi Osinbajo to declare a state of emergency in Kogi state.

Melaye said the declaration by the Acting President will go a long way to save people of the state from anarchy.

The Senator also called on the All Progressives Congress (APC) to call the Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello to order.

He said that the undemocratic tendencies of the Governor might ruin the work that genuine APC members have done in Kogi.

According to Daily Post, Melaye also said “The draconian Idi Amin approach to governance by Yahaya Bello today as displayed by his criminally minded hooligans and hired killers in usurping the legislative powers and priviledges of the Parliament is a clear manifestation of satanism.

“The unwarranted attack on Hon. Friday Sani Makama shall not be swept under the carpet.

“We are not in a banana republic. It is manifestly clear now that the acting President must declare a state of Emergency in Kogi State before Anarchy becomes Total.

“We will not allow him to take us back to Egypt. We must rescue Kogi NOW!!!!.”

On Tuesday, August 1, 2017, members of the Kogi House of Assembly were reportedly attacked by suspected thugs.
