Yahaya Bello sent thugs after me and my supporters-Dino

The PDP Senatorial candidate for Kogi West, Senator Dino Melaye yesterday  accused Governor Yahaya Bello and the All Progressives Congress of desperation to hang on to power at all cost.

The Senator who was reacting to the attack on his polling unit by political thugs however said that despite the violence and thuggery that   characterised the election, he would win the election.

He claimed that those who led thugs to attack his polling unit have been arrested by the police and has made confessional statement as to who sent them on the errand and are presently in police custody.

Senator Melaye said the attack did not come to him as a surprise as they had already given the police earlier information of possible areas of violence and ballot box snatching.

He claimed that if the election is conducted 100 times, he was confident of emerging winner, saying “if they ae popular, they will not be introducing violence into the process. They cannot achieve what they want through the gun.

“I am calling on the security agencies and INEC to respect their promise that where ever ballot boxes are taken away, it cannot be recorded and that votes in that unit will be cancelled.

“All these areas they have taken ballot boxes and ballot papers away should not be entertained to all at the collation centre. So that only valid votes will count because once a ballot box has been taken away, the integrity of those votes is completely questionable. So, INEC should respect their promise and not allow these election riggers to have their way.
