True to the threat issued by Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello less than a week ago at a ceremony in the state,some members of the ruling APC in Anyigba, DekinaLlocal Government of the state have unleashed terror on some PDP members in the town under a code name, “testing the microphone”.
The show of shame was triggered by massive decamping of some members of the APC in the IJI ward in Anyigba under the influence of one Alhaji Rilwan Mudi . Irritated by the action, the APC purportedly under the directive of the Dekina Council Chairman through the APC Kogi East Zonal youth leader, Alhaji Billa, went on rampage destroying the business offices and houses of PDP members and the decampees.
One of the decampees was stabbed and is currently receiving treatment at Maria Goretti hospital in Anyigba.
The gun totting thugs, including one nicknamed Akoji Copra , Alhassan Oje and Junior later went around the town shooting sporadically, destroyed houses of known PDP members while bragging that they are untouchable and would kill anyone who does not support the APC.
The carnage was led by a notorious thug called Abdul Madigba , alleged to have killed a number of people in the past. The story around town is that this group of Party thugs are untouchable because of the protection given them by the APC led government in the state which has made the Police helpless in their pursuit of them.
Meanwhile the PDP has vowed never to be intimidated as election nears. A statement by the party says Kogi state belongs to everyone irrespective of party affiliation and everyone should be able to support any party he or she deems fit.
