Dino Melaye has responded to Kogi state governor, Yahaya Bello.

The governor who is vexed at the senator for accusing him of sending assassins to him, called him a social deviant.

Melaye, who represents Kogi West Senatorial District called Governor Bello a "compound fool on cheap drugs" on his Instagram page.

Meanwhile, speaking with state house correspondents after a closed door meeting with acting President Yemi Osinbajo, in Abuja earlier Wednesday, Governor Bello said:

“I'd rather admonish Nigerians that when a child lacks proper parental care and home upbringing, he constitutes social menace in the society. And if the society does not take steps to check and correct such a child, he can turn into criminal and take into criminality. 

“Then, it'll be left to government to check such criminality. And if government does not, such a child can cause a serious embarrassment. That is what is happening in Kogi State.”
