Hoodlums Burn Down Schools To Be Commissioned By Dino Melaye

Government Girls Secondary School, Sarkin Noma and Lokongoma Secondary School both in Lokoja Local Government Area of Kogi state, which were due for inauguration this Wednesday have been vandalized and razed down by yet to be identified hoodlums.

The renovation of the schools which were facilitated by Senator Dino Melaye, are among 69 projects he had arranged for inauguration as part of his three year stewardship.

It was gathered that on Tuesday, some unidentified political thugs warned Dino not to enter Kogi State or else he will be attacked.

The political thugs who made their intention known through an unsigned pamphlet distributed yesterday at the naming ceremony of the child of the Lokoja administrator, Hon. Shiru Lawal, said Kogi State was a no go area for Dino.

The pamphlet reportedly read thus, “Dino don’t patronize Kogi. Stay away else, you have yourself to blame. Save yourself and remain where you are, keep off from our land.

“Dino come and reap what you sowed, you don’t respect our leaders so we don’t respect you. Respect is reciprocal.

“Take what you get...if you dare us expect the worse, we warn you.”
