The police in Kogi state say the have arrested the men who reportedly stoned the governor, Yahaya Bello on Friday, August 26, shortly after the Jumat prayer in Lokoja, the state capital.

The media had been awash with the incident which witnesses claimed occurred at the Lokoja Central Mosque in the old market area of the capital.
One source said that the discontented people also carried few placards while chanting anti-government slogans as the governor was reportedly pelted with rotten fruit and vegetables.

“The situation in this state is even worse than what the residents are doing. The situation is pathetic,” the source said.

And according to a picture obtained by Linda Ikeji, the men have been arrested by the police, although there is no official statement by the security operatives of revelations by the hoodlums.

After the incident, Governor Bello through his spokesperson, Kingsley Fanwo, said: “We are not unaware of scheming by change resistors to sponsor attacks against government officials. Sponsoring attacks against the governor will not stop our march to restore sanity to the polity.

“The administration of Governor Yahaya Bello will soon publish the names of corrupt citizens of the state who are behind the ghost workers syndrome.”

According to the governor, the real reason of the attack was the discontent of those who are against his radical reforms in the state’s civil service. He is convinced that thugs were hired by his political enemies who are pursuing personal interests.
