THE governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in the November 11, 2023 election in the Kogi State, Murtala Ajaka, has reacted to the attack on the residence of the Director-General of the SDP Campaign Council, Ibrahim Jibrin.
Ajaka, on Tuesday, claimed that he was the target of the attack which happened in Anyigba, Kogi State.
Trojan News Media had earlier reported that the thugs that attacked the house killed a policeman and four other persons.
The SDP governorship candidate alleged that the thugs who invaded Jibrin’s house had plans to assassinate him.
Speaking on Channels TV, Ajaka said, “They thought I was there; their target was to get me assassinated.
“They came between 3 am and 4 am and started shooting.”
He further stated that the incumbent Governor of the state, Yahaya Bello wants to force a successor on the people of the North Central state.
Ajaka said, “He (Bello) wants to force a successor on the people of Kogi State.”
He noted that the people of the state want change, adding that “it is not for me to disclose my winning formula. 11/11 shall tell. If Yahaya Bello and his people know they are strong, they should stop attacking the people of Kogi State.”
Some of the top contenders in the November 11, 2023 poll in Kogi include SDP’s Ajaka; Leke Abejide of the African Democratic Party (APC); Dino Melaye of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Usman Ododo of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is an ex-Auditor General of Local Government in Kogi under Bello.
