PDP raises alarm over gov Bello’s threat to unleash ‘killer squad’ on opponent 


The Kogi State chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), raised the alarm over an alleged plot by Governor Yahaya Bello, to unleash a killer squad on opponents ahead of the forthcoming 2023 general elections.

State Chairman of the PDP, Engr. Sam Uhuotu, raised the alarm at a press conference in Abuja on Friday.

In a statement issued by Uhuotu at the end of the parley, the party appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari, to immediately call Governor Bello to order and place him and his supporters on security watch list ahead of the 2023 General Elections.

“Our attention has been drawn to the crude, sad and disturbing video clip making the rounds on various social media platforms wherein the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, was busy inciting his supporters to unleash violence on opposition parties during the forthcoming 2023 General Elections.

The Governor issued this threat on Sunday, the 4th of September, 2022, at Ihima, Kogi State, while addressing his party faithful and loyalists

“In the video, Governor Bello was heard issuing threats in which he said, ’I will personally light a fierce fire in my hand; whoever wants it we shall use it to burn them, whoever survives it will thank God… Whoever is against us, we will make him or her join my (late mother) and lie with her in grave.

“The brazen threat by Governor Yahaya Bello raises apprehensions in the public space of the existence of a killer squad established to inflict violence on Nigerians ahead of the 2023 general elections.

“The posture and body language of Yahaya Bello since he assumed office in 2016 leaves no one in doubt as to the gruesome killings and sudden disappearance of several PDP Party faithful in Kogi State.”
