The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate in the just concluded Kogi West Senatorial rerun election, Dino Melaye, on Wednesday declared that nobody will take his “seat in the National Assembly.”
Melaye anchored his declaration on the fact that he won the Saturday’s senatorial election by a wide margin.
He spoke at the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Abuja while submitting a petition with 21 video CD’s documentary evidence on electoral malpractice that marred the Saturday’s election.
The sacked lawmaker insisted that thugs led by the Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly snatched ballot boxes and filled them up with those thump printed in favour of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
He said: In Igbeda ward, the Speaker of the state House of Assembly led thugs in snatching ballot boxes and these ballot boxes were taken to a designated centre where they were filled with ballot papers thumped in favour of APC.
“All these results were returned by INEC in favour of APC. All areas were you witnessed killings, shootings, helicopters releasing bullets and teargas results were returned.
