Trouble looms in Kogi govt house as Gov Bello Yahaya, Deputy Achuba in a face off

Trouble appears to be brewing in Kogi State government house as Deputy Governor Simon Achuba has cried out over alleged maltreatment by the Yahaya Bello-led administration.

Achuba is not only lamenting the withdrawal of his security details by the Kogi State Commissioner of Police, Busari Hakeem, but is also alleging that his life is in danger.

The Deputy Governor, who stated this when he addressed newsmen at his office in Lokoja, the state capital on Sunday, also accused the governor of withholding his impress for no known reason.

He claimed that on February 15 his security details were ordered to report to Government House for briefing by the ADC to Governor Bello.

The deputy governor who said he was about to travel home when the ADC to the governor called his security details for security briefing, alleged that on getting to Government House, the ADC to the governor took them to SARS office to make statement.

“They accused my ADC and Orderly of gun running but they denied the allegation. As I am speaking now they are under detention. I informed the Commissioner of Police on the situation but till now he has refused to take any action.

“I am a member of the All Progressive Congress (APC). I reported to the national leader of the APC. My impress has been stopped for no any reason by the governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello.

“I live as deputy governor in the house without security, I travelled home without police, my life is in danger,” he said.

According to Achuba, the state government has cut off electricity and water supply to his quarters, adding that he currently lives in darkness.

He then urged the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to call the state Commissioner of Police to order so that his security details can be restored back.
