Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West, has accused Governor Yahya Bello of plotting to assassinate him.
Melaye, who claimed ”three full load of policemen” stormed his house at Aiyetoro Gbede around 1am Friday morning, said the governor’s aide-de-camp was behind the arrangement.
2 i/c mopol,OC SARS & 2 1/c SARS and 3 full load of policemen ilegally arranged by ADC to Kogi State Governor came to my country home in Aiyetoro Gbede to possibly assasinate me at 1am. I have profound evidence of this. I will take them up on this. I will write the UN and ICC.

The Senator, who was recently named the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in next year’s senatorial elections, vowed to report the invasion of his property to the United Nations and International Criminal Court.
Melaye had, months ago, claimed he was abducted by gunmen only to resurface two days later. He has been in a running battle with Bello, with both accusing each other of corruption and lack of leadership qualities.
