The duo of Senator Dino Melaye from Kogi West who is a senatorial candidate on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Ms Natasha Akpoti, who is the senatorial candidate of the Special Democratic Party (SDP) in Kogi Central are alleging intimidation by policemen and other security agents who got directives from the state governor.
In a separate tweet, the duo said security agents have stopped their cars, with Natasha specifically saying she is deprived from entering her state.
In his tweet, Dino wrote:
“Adc to the governor arrested my coaster bus, searched the car in the presence of the occupant and some Naval officers and found nothing incriminating but surprisingly He refuse to release the vehicle and the occupants after 6hours. Plant anything and I will burst your bubbles.”
