Kogi Deputy Governor Cries Out As His Security Details Are Withdrawn

Deputy governor of Kogi State, Simon Achuba, has raised the alarm over threat to his life, as his security details were withdrawn without any cogent reason.He appealed to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to wade into the matter.

The governor, Yahaya Bello, has been at loggerheads with his deputy who emerged after the death of Abubakar Audu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate for the 2015 election.The conflict led to the severance of some of Achuba’s benefits.

Speaking during a press conference at his official residence in Lokoja yesterday, the deputy governor alleged that his security details were summoned to Government House for briefing, just as he was about to travel to his hometown for the botched election.


According to him, while he tried to reach them, the ADC to the governor also summoned his own ADC and his police orderly.Having waited in vain for them to return, he reportedly put a call through, only to discover that their lines were not reachable.

It was later gathered that they were detained and being interrogated on some gun-running charges, for which they were asked to make statements at the officer-in-charge, Special Anti-Robbery Squad (OC SARS) office in Government House.He explained that since that Friday, he had not seen them.

Achuba added that the Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Busari, whom he called to explain what was going on, promised to attend to the matter. However, the CP affirmed that Achuba contacted him and that he promised to look into the matter. “I will contact the ADC to the governor on why the deputy governor’s details were withdrawn.

“There’s no problem. He (Achuba) had requested two extra policemen prior to the withdrawal of his details. I don’t know if those two were given to him before the withdrawal of his details.“We post policemen to Government House, but I think the ADC to the governor is the person in charge of security at the Government House. He posts them.“We will send two policemen there pending when the issue will be resolved,” he said.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
