My rumoured arrest; malicious, tissues of lies - Kogi ALGON boss

Chairman of the Association of Local Governments Of Nigeria (ALGON), Kogi state chapter who is also the Administrator of Ijumu  local government area Hon Taufiq Isa has described as malicious and a tissue of lies, his  rumoured arrest by the police in connection with the assassination attempt on Senator Dino Melaye's life.
 
Information had broke out late Wednesday to the effect  that the administrator was arrested and whisked away to Abuja over the purported  attack on  Senator Dino Melaye 
 
The Administrator  who debunked the purported  allegation through his media consultant,  Abubakar Suleman lamented  that the rumour was unfounded and untrue, urging the general public to disregard the claims.
 
According to him , the  administrator as the Chief security officer of the local government had already constituted a 10- man  committee to investigate the assassination claim by Senator Dino Melaye even as the Commisioner of police Wilson Inalegwu has also iinstituted high powered probe panel which is headed by the Regent of OluIjumu.
 
" It is surprising to read on the pages of some newspapers that the Administrator of Ijumu local government has been arrested by the police"
 
He alleged that the story was sponsored by Senator Dino Melaye who has been desperate to smear the administrator's good reputation by trying to drag him into unnecessary and illogical issues.
 
The Media Consultant called on the good people of kogi to disregard the unfounded story while calling on journalists to confirms the  facts before rushing to press.
 
It would be recalled that last saturday , Senator Dino had stunned the world that he escaped assasination attempt on him in his country home at Aiyeto Gbede in Ijumu LGA of Ijumu allegedly fingering the Administrator Hon. Taufiw Isah who has consistently denied his involvement.
