“This is to achieve Bello’s plot to suppress the voter’s turn out in Kogi East which he believes is a stronghold of the SDP.

“The Muri/Sam Campaign Council is once more calling on the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun to transfer this Commissioner who is an eager enforcer of Bello’s desperate violent schemes to allow for a free and fair election in Kogi State.

“There can be no free and fair election if the resident police commissioner brazenly participates in conspiracy to kill and maim people to satisfy the inordinate desire of a governor who recently confessed that he will do anything not to lose an electoral seat.

“We also which to appeal to the DSS to kindly recall its 3rd highest ranking officer in the land, Mr Ajayi to the Headquarters in Abuja.
Out of respect for the service we have tried to avoid calling out this officer even when we are convinced he deliberately sought to stay back in Kogi to execute Bello’s unconstitutional agenda to muscle this election. Mr Ajayi’s rank is clearly above that of a State Director.”
