The Peoples Democratic Party National Youth Frontier (PDPNYF) has called for the immediate arrest of Hon. Ahmed Ahmed, a member representing Ankpa constituency in the Kogi State House of Assembly over allegations of mutiny, impunity and the kidnap of a fellow legislator, Hon. Friday Makama on Tuesday morning.
The leader of the PDPNYF, Comrade Austin Usman Okai made the call while briefing newsmen shortly after an emergency close door stakeholders meeting of the party held in Abuja.
“We hereby call on the Acting President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo as a matter of urgency to call the Kogi State Governor and his boys to order. Kogi state is not an autocratic state and we cannot continue to tolerate this impunity. This is not democracy.
“We equally seek for the immediate arrest of the member representing Ankpa constituency in the House of Assembly for plotting the kidnap of Hon. Friday Makama using the coercive influence of thugs and some uniformed police officers. This is sheer wickedness”, Okai said.
Speaking further on the development, Okai disclosed the resolve of the party concerning the Kogi State commissioner of police, Wilson Inalegwu.
“With stark dismay, we noticed the incessant political romance of CP Wilson Inalegwu who has condescended so low to work for the state governor shunning the ethical conducts of the Nigeria Police. This is not the first time the Commissioner of Police is present in a crisis recorded scene which he could not prevent due to his political switch. Inalegwu is glaringly partisan and not a neutral police officer.
“Recently, Wilson Inalegwu was present when Senator Dino Melaye was attacked under his watch in Lokoja. The attack led to the death of two innocent indigenes of the state leaving numerous others injured. The same Inalegwu motioned his boys who came all the way from Lokoja to arrest me in Abuja on the orders of the Kogi state governor. It is now a known fact that Wilson Inalegwu is a political police officer.
“Wilson Inalegwu should be transferred with immediate effect because he is causing more harm than good within the confluence state. He is not representing the interest of the Nigeria Police but his own interest.
“We are requesting for the urgent attention of the Acting President to mediate in this matter to prevent the scenario from escalating”, Okai added.
At the time of filing this report, heavily armed policemen led by the state police commissioner were still at the premises of the legislative house despite being unable to prevent the crisis.
It will be recalled that the Commissioner of Police and some fierce looking political thugs stormed the State Assembly Complex on Tuesday morning disrupting plenary and pushing for the unconstitutional arrest of the embattled member representing Igala Mela/Odolu, Hon Friday Makama.
