The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kogi State has charged security agencies to arrest the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Saturday’s Governorship election, Senator Dino Melaye.
The charge was made by the party Director, Media and Publicity/Spokesman of the Campaign Council, Kingsley Fanwo, at a “Thank You Press Conference” in Lokoja, the state capital, on Tuesday.
Fanwo submitted that Melaye committed cybercrime saying the defeated PDP candidate on a national TV claimed to have access to the back-end server of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.
“Dino Melaye has openly confessed that he hacked into the back-end of the Independent National Electoral Commission. He should be arrested and prosecuted for cyber crime,” Fanwo said.
Speaking further, “Are Dino Melaye’s children proud of his shameless physical combats on the floor of the National Assembly? Are his children proud of the fact that their mother levelled allegations of physical injuries against their father? Are Dino’s children proud of him?
“Dino Melaye was never in the race for the Governorship. The perennial contestant was in it for business and we do not see his allegations as anything more than the ranting of a thoroughly rejected political jobber.
“We can’t beat a child and expect him not to cry. But we will be magnanimous in victory. Someone who claimed to have boycotted an election is here complaining about the conduct. He was not even at his Polling Unit to vote. How he got over 40,000 votes should be probed.”
