Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, in a swift reaction to the allegation by Senator Dino Melaye that he was planning to assassinate him, said he did not believe that Dino would “make such a sweeping statement on security matters.”

The governor, speaking through his DG on Media and Publicity, Kingsley Fanwo, said he did not believe that was the position of Dino, adding that his supporters, who he described as “largely ignorant about security matters,” might be the ones behind the allegations.

The governor added that, “Senator Melaye understands the implications of making such weighty allegations and would not try it.”
