Kogi Assembly Violence; PDP Calls for Immediate Arrest of Ahmed Ahmed, Transfer of Police Commissioner

In a reacting to the invasion of Kogi State House of Assembly chambers by thugs today, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called for the immediate arrest of Hon. Ahmed Ahmed, member representing Ankpa I constituency in State House of Assembly over his role in the saga.
The leader of the Peoples Democratic Party National Youth Frontier (PDPNYF), Comrade Austin Usman Okai made the call while briefing newsmen shortly after an emergency close door stakeholders meeting of the group in Abuja.
“We hereby call on the Acting President, Prof. Yemi Osinbanjo to call the Kogi State Governor and his boys to order as a matter of urgency. Kogi state is not an autocratic state and we cannot continue to tolerate this impunity. This is not democracy.
“We equally seek for the immediate arrest of the member representing Ankpa constituency in the House of Assembly for plotting the kidnap of Hon. Friday Makama using the coercive influence of thugs and some uniformed police officers. This is sheer wickedness”, he said.
Speaking further on the development, Okai described Kogi State Commissioner of police, Wilson Inalegwu as being partisan.
“With a stark dismay, we noticed the incessant political romance of CP Wilson Inalegwu with Kogi state governor. He has descended so low, shunning the ethical conducts of the Nigeria Police”
“This is not the first time the Commissioner of Police is present in a crisis recorded scene of which he failed to prevent due to his political leaning. Inalegwu is glaringly an opposition and not a neutral police officer.
“Recently, Wilson Inalegwu was present when Senator Dino Melaye was attacked under his watch in Lokoja. The attacked led to the death of two innocent indigenes of the state leaving numerous others injured. The same Inalegwu motioned his boys who came all the way from Lokoja to arrest me in Abuja on the orders of the Kogi state governor. It is now a known fact that Wilson Inalegwu is a political police officer.
“Wilson Inalegwu should be transferred with immediate effect because he is causing more harm than good within the confluence state. He is not representing the interest of the Nigeria Police but his own interest.
“We call on the Acting President to mediate in this matter to prevent the scenario from escalating”, he added.
It was reported that thugs invaded the chambers of Kogi State House of Assembly during plenary this afternoon despite the presence of heavily armed policemen.
