Breaking: Police reportedly seal off venue of Kogi PDP leaders’ meeting

Few hours to the presidential and National Assembly elections, a report by The Cable claims that police have sealed off the Lokoja residence of Ibrahim Idris, former governor of Kogi state, where Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) leaders in the state are currently meeting.

The newspaper states further that the road to the residence has also been cordoned off, making it impossible for other PDP leaders to join the meeting.

A source at the meeting, cited by the newspaper, said the PDP leaders were perfecting their strategies for the elections when security operatives stormed the residence.

Details of the incident are still sketchy at the time of filing this report.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Kogi East Elders Council (KEEC) endorsed President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term in office ahead of the 2019 general elections.

The elders also dissociated themselves from a purported statement credited to the council urging the Igala and Bassa people not to vote for the president to prevent the perceived re-election of Governor Yahaya Bello.

The elders urged the people of Kogi East to come out during the polls and vote for continuity, adding that President Buhari and Governor Bello are not the problem of the Kogi East people.

This was contained in a statement sent to Legit.ng on Thursday, February 14 by the chairman/convener of the KEEC, Dr Usman Ogbo.
