My people stopped thugs from burning my house, Melaye claims


‎Senator Dino Melaye has said the intervention of his people scuttled attempts by some hired thugs to burn his house in his home town, Aiyetoro-Gbede, in Kogi State. ‎

Melaye, who represented  Kogi West in the 8th National Assembly, claimed the thugs were sighted at Obajana junction in 15 buses and armed with weapons.

According to him, majority of the people in the town, especially the youth, relocated to his house to prevent the thugs from carrying out the mission. ‎

He said, “My people moved into my house the moment they heard of the evil plans of the thugs to safeguard the place.

“The thugs had to turn back when they probably heard that my people were battle ready for them.”

Melaye had in a tweet on Tuesday, alerted Nigerians that some thugs were on their way to his house in Aiyetoro Gbede to destroy it.

He alleged that a ‘top politician’ masterminded the planned attack. ‎

He had Twitted, “Loaded thugs left Government House, Lokoja, now on their way to my house in Aiyetoro Gbede.‎ Their mission is to destroy the house.”‎
