Senator Dino Melaye has promised to report Governor Yahaya Bello and other politicians in Kogi state to the International Criminal Court (ICC) over the alleged violence that occurred during the senatorial and governorship election in the state.
Melaye, who is currently battling to get re-elected in the National Assembly, is trailing his opponent, Smart Adeyemi in the Kogi west senatorial district rerun poll.
KanyiDaily recalls on Monday, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declared Yahaya Bello as the winner of the Governorship election while the result of the Kogi West Senatorial election remains unknown.
Melaye, who is not happy with the turn out of event, said what occurred in Kogi state was not election, rather a civil war that claimed 16 lives so far.
On his Twitter page on Tuesday, Melaya promised he would report Bello, Adeyemi and others to the International community and then head to the International Court of Justice in Hague, Netherlands.
“What we had in Kogi is no election, what we had was a civil war that has claimed 16 lives so far. I will report Bello, Smart Adeyemi. Taofik, Speaker Kolawole, and Sunday Faleke to the international community and then proceed to Hague. This I promise, “he tweeted.
