Yahaya Bello, Governor of Kogi State, has reacted to the travails of Senator from his state, Dino Melaye, in the hands of security operatives.
Mr Bello said he read the ordeals of the Kogi West Senator in the media as the “law enforcement agencies are carrying out their lawful duties.”
“I read it in the news and watch it on television as law enforcement agencies are carrying out their normal lawful duties and that is all I can say about that,” he said.
The governor also stated that members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, were determined to support President Muhammadu Buhari to continue providing “purposeful” leadership.
“As for the party, we have a strong and purposeful leader in the person of President Muhammadu Buhari who is giving us leadership and direction and every one of us in APC will align with him one hundred percent,” he said.
Mr Melaye is currently under investigation by the Nigeria Police Force.
