I survived four assassination attempts – Kogi PDP guber candidate, Dino Melaye

The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), candidate in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Kogi, Dino Melaye has claimed that he survived four assassination attempts in the state.

Melaye who disclosed this during an interview on Arise TV accused the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, of masterminding the attempts because “violence is in the DNA of the party.”

The former lawmaker, while speaking on October 12, said Kogi is like an evil forest that needs a messiah to bring redevelopment to the state.

According to him, tension has been part of the lives of the Kogi people since the APC came into power seven years ago.

The former Kogi West senator said he hopes to be instrumental in ameliorating the pains of those living in the state.

He further said it has never been this bad in the history of Kogi, as the state is more divided than at any other time in its history.

Melaye said: “I have survived four assassination attempts; I have had 12 court cases of FG vs. Dino Melaye, and I have been attacked severally.

“It is not new, as it is in the DNA of the APC to be violent. Kogi State is like an evil forest that needs instantaneous redevelopment and needs a messiah.”
