Miss Natasha Akpoti, a Social Democratic Party, Kogi West Senatorial candidate has urged Mr. Yahaya Bello, the Kogi state governor to allow peace in Okene land.
Akpoti, accused Bello of instructing Okehi Local Government Area police Area Commander to arrest and detain Mr. Muhammed Ibrahim and Mr. Tunde Ojo for supporting her senatorial ambition.
She has since reminded Bello how he threatened her on a telephone asking her to drop her senatorial ambition.
“I recall your words when you called on me to step down for your anointed candidate Yakubu Oseni “Natasha I have everything at my disposal to frustrate and defeat you if you challenge my decision to make Oseni a Senator” she said.
Akpoti recalled how Bello called her and told her, “I am so powerful I can shut down the entire state for 1 week and nothing will happen. I will fight you and everyone who wants to disgrace me before president Buhari with my last blood”
She reminded the governor of the 2007 incidents where for 10 months, hundreds of lives and properties were lost in a battle between the Ibira indigenes and police, and warned him never to allow that happens again.
“Today, you might have most of the police and thugs, but I have the good people; and one with the people has God; one with God is majority”.
Now, for the first time I openly, call on you to sheath your sword and let the spirit of democracy reign, she told Bello.
