Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Elder Simon Achuba on Thursday has alleged that the governor of the state, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has sent gunmen after his life.
Acbuba called on the inspector general of Police, SSS, Army and other security personnel to safeguard his life, family members and his aides.
Achuba, who spoke with newsmen at his official residence in Lokoja said, based on information at his disposal, the governor has mobilized gunmen to attack him, members of his family and aides.
“I want the police, SSS, IGP to know that if anything should happen to me, my family and aides, the governor should be held responsible,” he said.
Achuba explained that his major problem with Governor Bello was purely based on under performance, intimidation and non-payment of salaries to state workers.
“As I speak to you, nobody in this government can say this is the nominal roll of the state civil servant, and to say that government have cleared all workers’ salaries with the N30.8 billion last tranche of the bailout is not true.
“The only sector government is no longer owing salaries, is the political office holders,” he said.
The deputy governor called on President Muhammadu Buhari to beam his searchlight on the state.
