Senator Dino Melaye has accused the Department of State Services, DSS, of doing nothing despite sending them a letter before the alleged assassination attempt on his life.
Mr. Melaye, representing Kogi West District in the Nigerian Senate, shared the letter on his social media pages and said the Director of the DSS refused to respond to it.
“Notice of threat to my life and this program sent to Director DSS Kogi State by my Lawyer Ricky Tafa (SAN), yet no action,” he wrote.
He also accused the Kogi commissioner of police of refusing to provide him protection during his visit to the state.
He said, “Kogi State Govt people barricaded road to stop me from moving today. This is strange in our land. They used this grader belonging to Kogi state govt to block this bridge just to stop me from going to Yagba east to commission my projects. We yet avoided them.
“Letter of notice on my tour and program to CP Kogi. Yet no police cover given today.
“God save us in Kogi.”
Melaye on Thursday escaped another assassination attempt on his life while on his way to Isanlu in Yagba East local government council to commission some projects.
It is understood that Senator Melaye who left his country home at Ayetoro-gbede met roadblock with the heavy truck shortly before Isanlu as the gunmen also set up burn fire with tyres blocking any one moving into the town.
