•Hoodlums destroy, burn Dino Melaye's constituency projects

Barely one week after a constituency project built by Senator Dino Melaye was set ablaze in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, the skills acquisition centre built by the senator representing Kogi West senatorial district in his country home, Ayetoro Gdede, in Ijumu Local Government Area (LGA) of Kogi State has been vandalised by unknown hoodlums.

According to the National President of Ayetoro Gdede Development Association, (AGDA), Mr. Olorunfemi Ezekiel Adekunle, the dastardly act was carried out last Sunday night.

According to him, the centre was vandalised after several attempts were made to burn down the skills acquisition centre.
Adekunle who described the act as wicked, said the hoodlums who in their dark mind thought that they were destroying Melaye, forgot that they were destroying the community’s asset.

He revealed that the community leaders have officially reported the incident to the Nigeria Police and have also met with the monarch, His Royal Highness, Oba Ehindero, to discuss how to stop further attacks on the centre.

According to him, the services of vigilante have been engaged to watch over the place.
He called on the people of the area to report any suspicious movement around the area.
Reacting to the incident, Melaye has said he would continue to provide facilities, and also defend and protect the facilities in Kogi West.

In a statement issued yesterday, the senator who spoke through his media aide, Mr. Gideon Ayodele said he was still playing his part by facilitating projects even to the most remote part of his constituency.

He equally charged the communities to protect the water projects, electricity, schools, training/ skills acquisition centres provided for them.
