Police Block Meeting Venue Of PDP In Kogi State

Published

Police Invade PDP Meeting Place At Kogi State

The Police have sealed off the Lokoja residence of Ibrahim Idris, former governor of Kogi state, where Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in the state are currently meeting.

The road to the residence, which is behind the government house, has also been cordoned off, making it impossible for other PDP leaders to join the meeting.

A source at the meeting said the PDP stakeholders were perfecting their strategies for the elections when security operatives stormed the residence.

“As I speak to you, about 50 armed mobile policemen are mounting strategic position on the street and in front of the house,” the source said.

“They just retreated but their trucks are parked within 100-meter radius.”

It is unclear why the police took action but opposition leaders have raised the alarm that there are plots to deploy security operatives in their stronghold to destabilize the PDP during the elections.

Naija News reports that the state governor, Yahaya Bello who is a member of the All Progressive Congress (APC) has sometimes last week been accused by Senator Dino Melaye, of using the police to harass PDP members in the state.
