Senator Dino Melaye has filed a petition to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) over the conduct of the OC MOPOL Kogi state, CSP Mohammed Sani. The Kogi West senator alleged that Sani was a henchman of the state Governor, Yahaya Bello, and was using his position an officer of the law to wreak havoc in the state.
Melaye stated that CSP Sani was responsible for ordering policemen to work alongside some touts that made an attempt on his life on June 12, 2017, after he finished addressing his constituents at the Kogi state Polytechnic, Lokoja.
