Governor Yahaya Bello’s aide has accused senator Dino Melaye of being behind the violence witnessed during the 2019 gubernatorial election in Kogi State.
Speaking during an interview on Channels TV, Mohammed Onogwu, Chief Press Secretary to Kogi State Governor, stated that they have video evidence to back the claim up.
Onogwu disclosed this ahead of a senatorial election re-run involving Dino Melaye and Smart Adeyemi.
“We have (video) clip evidence where he (Dino Melaye) was distributing money on the line where they were voting.
“Going by the reports that various observers have turned in after the election, the Governorship election was largely adjudged as being fair and credible.
“All the violence that took place in the last elections was orchestrated by Senator Dino Melaye who was a candidate in that election,” he said.
