Mrs Rashidat, noticing the seriousness in the combat ready youths and for fear of being lynched immediately ordered the entourage to return back to Lokoja.

Leader of the youth group, Jibrin Ojadale, a physically-challenged man on wheelchair, said ; “we will not allow her distribute any item to our people unless governor Bello pay the state workers and pensioners their outstanding salary arrears.

“We also want him to account for the N20 billion bailout given to him by the federal government.”

A youth, Peters David, said in an interview, “We don’t want any Kogi State governor’s aides around here, because the governor has failed us.

“Bello is a wicked governor, we will not allow his wife or any of his aides enter our community. What can the governor claim to have done for this community since he assumed office?

“Our people are dying every day due to lack of salary. Armed robbers and kidnapers have taken over the state,” he said.
