Must read

There was drama on Saturday when soldiers at Agbadu Bunu village in Kaba/Bunu LGAs of Kogi stopped some policemen allegedly escorting a politician during the election.

The three Toyota Jeeps convoy was stopped with other vehicles by the soldiers for flouting the restriction placed on vehicular movement.

It was observed that when the convoy was stopped, the policemen alighted to meet the soldiers while their ‘principal’ was at the back of the Jeep.

All efforts to appeal to the soldiers by the policemen were rebuffed as one of the soldiers was shouting “you are not on election duty. Go back!

The soldier queried: ” Are they (policemen) supposed to be moving around during the election? They should tell their principal to come down and explain to our Oga Today is not for ‘big man’ to be moving around. Let all politicians stay in their house to go and vote.”

It took them over 30 minutes before the soldiers allowed the policemen to pass. At the scene, there were other scores of heavy trucks packed by the soldiers.
