Yahaya Bello’s aide slams Dino Melaye, says he was responsible for Kogi state election violence
Senator Dino Melaye has been accused by one of the aides of Governor Yahaya Bello for the roles he played in regards to violence witnessed in the last Kogi State election.
This allegation was levelled against Senator Dino Melaye by the Chief Press Secretary to Kogi State Governor, Mohammed Onogwu while appearing on a Channels TV programme on Sunday, November 24.
Mohammed Onogwu said that they have a video evidence to back their claim.
“We have (video) clip evidence where he (Dino Melaye) was distributing money on the line where they were voting.
“Going by the reports that various observers have turned in after the election, the Governorship election was largely adjudged as being fair and credible.
“All the violence that took place in the last elections was orchestrated by Senator Dino Melaye who was a candidate in that election,” he said.
This is coming ahead of the rerun election the PDP Senatorial candidate and his APC Counterpart, Smart Adeyemi are expected to participate in.
