Kogi State Deputy Governor, Simon Achuba, has alleged that the governor, Yahaya Bello is planning to assassinate him, his family members and aides.
Achuba, at a press conference at his official residence in Lokoja on Thursday he has credible information on the plot by Bello to attack him.
“The governor has mobilized his gunmen to attack me and this I want to put to the public and draw the attention of the Inspector General of Police, the Director of State Security Services and law enforcement agents that if anything happens to me and any member of my family, my aides and all my staff, he should be held responsible” he said.
The deputy governor said he began to have strained relationship with Governor Bello when he (Achuba) took a stand against the issue of non-performance, non-payment of salaries to workers and lack of infrastructural development under the current administration.
Achuba said the violent crimes in the state are the handiwork of gunmen he said to be working for the governor to intimidate and silence his critics.
