Nigeria’s secret police, the Department of State Services (DSS), has begun an investigation into the video of Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, threatening people to shoot anyone saying bad things about his administration.
Sahara Reporters revealed that the video had been brought to the attention of the secret police.
“Senior intelligence officers have seen the video and it’s being investigated here at the headquarters in Abuja,” the source said.
Bello also in the video bragged that he could handle a gun better than the people he was addressing, despite not being a security agent.
“If I hear any rumour or hear anybody murmuring, even if it’s in the person’s room and I said I want to see the person and you cannot provide him, then be prepared to be the person’s substitute,” Bello who contested the ruling All Progressives Congress presidential primary was heard saying in the video.
“That’s why I’m saying it loud and clear for everyone to hear. Not just Ihima, not just about Ebira but the whole of Kogi. Because some of those people who are prepared to do evil, may be some of them are older than me.
“You cannot hold gun more than me. For that, everyone should receive and disseminate the message. Record and play it for them that I’m ready this time around.”
