Senator Dino Melaye said that within a space of one year, he had escaped four assassination attempts on his life.
The lawmaker representing Kogi West at the upper chamber reportedly made the assertion at a media parley in Lokoja on Wednesday following his declaration for the governorship seat in the state.
According to the Senator, his decision to oppose the alleged oppressive leadership of the present administration made him escape four assassination attempts between 2018 and 2019.
He said he won’t stop criticizing the Yahaya Bello led-APC government until the right thing is done for the people.
The senator also observed that his criticisms of the present administration also led to his arraignment in 18 different courts in one year.
“I will challenge Governor Bello pumper to pumper. I can’t be intimidated by the constant harassment by the APC led government.
“I am using this medium to challenge the NUJ to organize a debate among all the aspirants vying for the number one seat of this state. I am very convinced that some candidates will be taken off from here with an ambulance because they lack idea. Other aspirants have money than idea, but Dino Melaye has idea than money,” Senator Melaye said.
