The representative speaking to Kogi West, Dino Melaye, has again
accused the state government for intending to kill him on March 8 or 9. Melaye, who emerged the victor of last Saturday's senatorial decision made the charge in a message posted on his checked Twitter handle.
He wrote, “Kogi State Government is planning to attack me on the March 8 or 9. You will fail as always. God is my defence at all times. Nigerians take note.”
However, the Director-General, Media, Publicity and Strategy to the Governor, Kingsley Fanwo, said there was no truth in the allegation.
He said, “We have decided not to respond to such blackmail and mind games by him. How can you allege a government is trying to assassinate you? It is spurious and unintelligent.”
“Our efforts on securing lives and property have been hailed globally. He campaigned here in Kogi State freely. Nobody attacked him.”
