PHOTOS: Hoodlums Raze School Set For Inauguration By Senator Dino Melaye
As political gladiators continue to flex their muscles in Kogi state, innocent students are the ones feeling the brunt.
Some unidentified hoodlums have burnt down the Government Girls Secondary School Sarkin Noma and Lokongoma Secondary School in Lokoja LGA, which were due for inauguration this morning (Wednesday, July 18th) by Senator Dino Melaye.
The renovation of the schools was facilitated by Dino Melaye, the senator representing the West Senatorial District of the State.
Bounce News gathered that the schools were razed down over night and vandalized by yet to be identified hoodlums.
The projects are among the sixty nine (69) projects the Senator had arranged for inauguration as part of his three-year stewardship to the state.
The political thugs who made their intention known through a publication distributed yesterday at the naming ceremony of the Lokoja administrator, Honourable Shiru Lawal, said Kogi State was a no go area for the Senator
The pamphlet which contained no signature read thus, “Dino don’t patronize Kogi.
“Stay away else, you have yourself to blame. Save yourself and remain where you are, keep off from our land.
“Dino, come and reap what you sowed, you don’t respect our leaders so we don’t respect you. Respect is reciprocal.
“Take what you get if you dare us expect the worse, we warn you,”the publication added.
Meanwhile, the lawmaker while reacting to the threat said he had formally written the Police and other security agents of his coming to Kogi State to commission his various projects in seven local government councils.
The projects, according to the Federal lawmaker, are expected to be commissioned from Wednesday till Friday this week.
Senator Melaye has had a running battle with the state governor, a crisis that led to his planned but failed recall process.
