The progressive youths of Kogi State, and all youth bodies within and outside the state, condemn in totality the arrest and sudden disappearance of Oladele John Nihi and his aide, Abraham Ibukun Eunice.
Oladele and Eunice were picked up on the late hours of Monday in Naomi Hotel at Okoro Gbede, Ijumu LGA, Kogi State.
This came shortly after he returned from a “Thank You” tour with Senator Dino Melaye, across Ijumu and Mopa Amuro LGAs.
It was alleged by an eye witness, that there were attempts to plant ammunitions in Nihi’s car before the arrest; but they failed. The eye witness further explain that the Mobile Police men who were shooting sporadically, forcefully smuggled Nihi and Eunice away to an unknown destination.
All these is said to have happened in the presence of the administrator of Ijumu LGA, Hon. Taufiq Isah; who was believed to have given the order.
One could recall that Hon. Taufiq is a sworn enemy of Senator Dino Melaye. And the former has earlier been accused of making an attempt on the life of the senator, on two different occasions.
We here by call on the necessary human right bodies, to do the needful and see to the safe release of Oladele John Nihi and Abraham Ibukun Eunice.
