L-R: Kogi State Governor; Yahaya Bello, Senator Dino Melaye

The rally was holding at the front of the Kogi State Polytechnic when gunmen invaded the venue.

‎Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi West Senatorial District, on Monday escaped another “assassination” attempt during a rally in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.

Melaye, who made this known on his Twitter handle, claimed that‎ two of his vehicles were severely damaged by unknown gunmen who invaded the venue of the rally.
The disruption of the rally was a furtherance of the face-off between Melaye and the Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, which has led to a move to recall the senator by his constituents.
Both Melaye and Bello are members of the All Progressives Congress.
Melaye tweeted:
