Video of Yahaya Bello threatening critics with gun under investigation  

Kogi Gov., Yahaya Bello

A video of Kogi State governor, Yahaya Bello, threatening to shoot anyone found condemning his administration is reportedly under the investigation of the Department of State Services (DSS). 

The viral video of the governor in the infamous act has drawn him public reproach. It has attracted the attention of the DSS and the secret agency have set to work over it, as per SaharaReporters.  

“Senior intelligence officers have seen the video and it’s being investigated here at the headquarters in Abuja,” a source told the publication. 

Bello was seen in the video, saying, “If I hear any rumour or hear anybody murmuring, even if it’s in the person’s room and I said I want to see the person and you cannot provide him, then be prepared to be the person’s substitute. 

“That’s why I’m saying it loud and clear for everyone to hear. Not just Ihima, not just about Ebira but the whole of Kogi. Because some of those people who are prepared to do evil, may be some of them are older than me. 

“You cannot hold gun more than me. For that, everyone should receive and disseminate the message. Record and play it for them that I’m ready this time around.”
