A chairman of ALGON whom senator Dino Melaye has accused of plotting to kill him has accused him of stealing items from Internally Displaced Persons camp (IDPs).
According to Daily post, the Kogi state chairman of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria, ALGON, Mr. Toufiq Isah, has alleged that the Kogi west Senatorial District, Dino Melate stole items for Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, in the North West on December, 2016, to his home town Ayetoro-Gbede.
The LG state chairmen, called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, and other anti-corruption agencies to investigate and prosecute Senator Dino Melaye.
Mr Toufig, said this on Monday in a interview with newsmen in his home town Okoro–Gbede in Ijimu, concerning an alleged attempt to assassinate Sen. Dino Melaye in his house, which Melaye accused him of chairing the plans to kill him.
He said “I am using this medium to call on the EFCC and the Presidency to investigate how items meant for IDPs in the North-east got to the hand of a senator who ordinarily is supposed to contribute to ameliorate the sufferings of the people.
“The items, according to information, were packed in his house at Ayetoro- Gbede. EFCC should also investigate and uncover the staff of NEMA who might have aided and abated Dino in that shoddy deal.
“If you go to some villages, within our local government area, you will notice dearth of basic social amenities. “The Governor Yahaya Bello-led administration has made it compulsory to all the councils’ administrators to go down to the hinterlands and touch people’s lives positively through the New Direction Agenda of the government, and that is exactly what I am doing in my council area” he added.
