The governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), in the November 11, 2023 election in Kogi State, Murtala Ajaka, has raised the alarm over an alleged assassination plot on him.
Ajaka made that claim during an interview on Channels TV’s programme, Politics Today, on Tuesday night.
He disclosed this while commenting on an alleged attack in Dekina Local Government of the state.
According to him, he was the target of the attack at the LG together with his campaign director, Ahmad Ata.

He noted that he went to the police headquarters in Abuja to protest on the matter.
Ajaka said: “The attacks are taking place under one commander. You can see the vehicles. The civil defence (officers) they use there are not from Kogi State. They are in Kogi State for the election.
“The governor (Yahaya Bello) said he did not want to see me alive. Let them take me to court. I will give the details. I have an audio tape.”
“The governor wants to impose a successor on the people of Kogi State. But they don’t want Yahaya Bello anymore,” he added.
