Thugs ‘kidnap 3 witnesses over Kogi AA governorsip petition’

Thugs on February 26, 2024, abducted three witnesses associated with Olayinka Braimoh, the Action Alliance Governorsip Candidate of Kogi State, allegedly from the ruling party.

The fracas occurred at the National Judicial Institute in Abuja, where the Kogi State Governorsip Tribunal was being held.

The three abducted witnesses have been identified as Idris Khadijat, Safiyat Muhammed, and Abdulmalik Muhammed. Available information indicates that the abductees are currently being molested, with their family members similarly threatened, for daring to testify against Kogi State governor Alh Ododo Ahmed.

As at the time of filing this report, the whereabout of other witnesses are still unknown.

Reports also suggest that vehicles which conveyed the witnesses to the court proceedings were vandalised by the same thugs.

Confirmation revealed that the attack was carried out due to the strength of AA candidate’s petition as evidences being presented are strong enough for the court to unseat Ododo Ahmed, the governor of the state.

Disturbingly, radio stations in the central senatorial district recently broadcasted a warning to the residents, cautioning them against serving as witnesses for any political party other than APC.
