Senator Melaye might have organized arson himself – Yahaya Bello
It would be recalled that suspected hoodlums allegedly burnt down some block of classrooms which the senator was supposed to have commissioned. Melaye had gone ahead to blame political opponents.
But in a reaction to the incident, the state governor while speaking to selected journalists said Melaye is known to be an ‘attention seeker’ and could have orchestrated the incident himself.
“Remember the person in question is an attention seeker, remember he has orchestrated self-attacks severally in the state and I won’t be surprised in order to draw public sympathy if he organised that for himself.
“This is a project he started; nobody stopped you from starting it. You continued it and you completed it, nobody stopped you. You are about commissioning it, why would anybody go and burn it down? Why would any right thinking person go there and burn it down?
“That is not our character, that is not my own style of politicking. If anything, any development is for the people. The money did not come from his pocket, it is public fund meant for the people. So, if he tries to do that, and turn around to seek for public sympathy and orchestrated that on himself again, it is most unfortunate. That is the only way I can attribute it,” he said.
