Be Very Careful - Bello attacks Senate over 'little Hitler' comment

In the motion, Ogembe had alleged that Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State sponsored some political thugs to disrupt an empowerment programme he held for his constituents.

"You will recall that sometime a year ago when they wanted to recall Dino, I advised the governor that they are wasting the resources of that state; that it is mission impossible", he said.

He asked the Senate to instruct the James Manager led-Ad-hoc Committee to take the issue as part of their assignments and to ensure that they were still in the custody of NAHCO.

He lamented that although he had written and approached the Kogi State Police Command for security support, they refused to provide security for the event at the instance of the governor.

Other members of the committee are; Jeremiah Useni, Isa Misau, Kabir Marafa, Solomon Olamila, Matthew Uroghide and Chukwuka Utazi.

Raising Order 43 of Senate Standing Rules, he said: "Mr. President, due to my private investigation I got a very serious revelation yesterday and I am so happy that a committee has been constituted by the senate under the leadership of the ranking Senator James Manager".

"These items were intercepted by the Nigerian customs because they did not come with end-user certificates. When you are bringing military equipment into the country they must come with end user certificate certified by the national security adviser".

The Director-General, Bureau of Information and Grassroots, Abdulkareem Abdulmalik, directed Tribune Online to the special adviser to the governor on security matters, Jerry Omodara.

"They should protect every Nigerian including the governor of Kogi State or Kaduna State or whichever state where they think their people are at loggerheads with their chief executives".

"Jerry Omadara presented himself physically before customs". These items as I speak detention notice are on them.

"I believe the committee will unravel the mystery behind this seizure".

A statement by the director research and documentation of the party, Dickson Achadu, said the interception of the military uniforms and other hardware was a divine intervention, as the people of the state do not deserve to be visited with violence by an "appointed governor". "It is unsafe trend and the senate was right when it said Yahaya Bello is a threat to democracy".

While noting that Bello since assumption of office as has witnessed the death of workers who went through unending screening exercise without pay, the party said never had suffering and hardship been this witnessed in the history of the state. His spokesperson, Petra Akinti-Onyegbule, could not be reached on phone.
