Senator Dino Melaye has accused the Kogi state Governor, Yahaya Bello of plotting to assassinate him.

On Sunday, April 16, 2017, Melaye was attacked by alleged assassins in his country home in Kogi state.

The Senator said the Governor wants to kill him because of his decision to support the poor pensioners and workers.

According to Punch, Melaye said “Yahaya Bello collected N20bn from the Federal Government as bailout fund. Still, he refused to settle workers. He also collected N11bn from the Paris Club fund. Still, he refused to pay workers and pensioners.

“Children can no longer go to school. Tenants can no longer pay their house rent. Enough is enough, the people of Kogi State are tired of this government.

“The advent of Yahaya Bello as governor and Taofiq Isa as local government administrator in the political history of Kogi State has brought this unfortunate socio-political paradigm shift.”

Responding to the allegation, Governor Bello said he did not believe that Melaye will make a statement like that.
