The Social Democratic Party, SDP, in kogi state has alleged that Governor Yahaya Bello has arranged with some security chiefs to arrest some notable leaders of their party.

This was contained in a statement issued by the Director of New Media
Muri/Sam Campaign Council,
Isaiah Davies Ijele on Wednesday, stated that the governor has plan to utilize illegal governmental means to arrest major stakeholders and leaders of the Social Democratic Party – SDP, branding them as terrorists.

The statement further stated that Governor is desperate to salvage his failing administration and intends to frame and arrest key leaders of our party, such as the Director General, Muri/Sam Campaign Council, Sheikh Jibril Ibrahim, the Director General of Youths Mobilization, Hon. Ahmed Attah, and other esteemed members of the council of Muri/Sam Campaign organization.

The statement read thus, ” Infact, in a bid to execute their plans, the governor has secured a court order to arrest our leaders. We feel it is essential to bring this information to the attention of the General public. We firmly assert that any attempt to detain our leaders will be met with resistance from the citizens of Kogi State, who are eager for a change in governance”,

It also noted that a reliable source revealed that an FCT Anti Kidnap team, led by the OC Anti-Kidnapping, FCT Command, and his thugs has been contracted to carry out these deceitful actions.

These elaborate plot is an obvious manifestation to stop the escalating popularity of the SDP Candidate in the November 11 Governorship Elections.

” We are making an urgent appeal to the President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the National Security Adviser, the Inspector General of Police, and all relevant security agencies to take swift action and prevent Governor Yahaya Bello and his associates from proceeding with these unjust actions. We assert that elections should not be treated as acts of war or matters of life and death.

However, the Governor denied the allegations advising Ajaka to face his problems with the security agencies.

Debunking the allegations, the Spokesman/Director of Media and Publicity, Kogi State APC Campaign Council, Evangelist Kingsley Femi Fanwo said,” Our attention has been drawn to a spurious allegation by the discredited merchant of falsehood in Kogi politics, the Social Democratic Party, to the effect that Governor Yahaya Bello is planning to arrest SDP leaders over frame-up charges of terrorism. This is another tempo of falsehood from the bottle-size overambitious group.

“As a Government, we will not condone reckless statements as we urge the security agencies to arrest the current trend by acting decisively against inflammatory statements.

“A lack of action has emboldened some political opportunists to think they can spread lies, incite the people, play politics of ethnic profiling and still get away with them,”, Fanwo said.

He further said Terrorism is a very serious national issue that shouldn’t be ordinarily trivialised by any group, no matter how confused. But the SDP would stop at nothing to push their noses in front as serious contenders when they know they stand no chance whatsoever in the forthcoming Governorship Election”,

He urged security agencies to invite the fiction authors for questioning and to tender empirical facts to support their claims, we wish to dismiss the allegation as another attention-seeking, unimaginatively concocted lie aimed at creating panic and preemptively covering their satanic plans against the Kogi voters. The SDP and its desperate candidate must also raise dust to keep their access to the pockets of their sponsors alive. We are miles ahead of the known and hideous conspirators.

” We wish to remind the Kogi voters who have resolved to continue and consolidate on the achievements of the past seven years, that the SDP and their co-travellers to a no point will continue their lies, name-dropping and spurious propaganda. All that is needed will be done on November 11 when you will overwhelmingly elect Ahmed Usman Ododo as your next Governor”.

The spokesperson said If there are plans to terrorise the Kogi people, security agencies will ensure it is scuttled and we are confident that November 11 will make history as the best election day in the history of our dear Confluence State.

We call on security agencies to as a matter of necessity, urgency and professionalism, invite those behind the reckless and defenceless allegation to provide proofs. Issues like these are capable of spreading fear if not curtailed immediately. As a Campaign Council, we will continue to preach peace and togetherness as well as abide by the provisions of our laws.
