A journalist and publisher of AljazirahNigeria Newspapers, Mr Bassey Etuk Williams, has commenced the process of instituting a one billion naira case against the Governor of Kogi State, Mr Yahaya Bello.
Mr Bassey alleged he was attacked by aides to the governor in Abuja on Friday while he was trying to access his residence at No. 12, Benghazzi Street, Wuse zone 4, Abuja.
An eye witness who spoke on condition of anonymity Governor Bello’s aides attacked Mr William as soon as he questioned why an innocent citizen should be denied access to a public road.
Williams has lodged complain in Police Station and has vowed to challenge the assault in court.
Meanwhile a close source confirmed he will be launching a N1bn suit against Governor Bello and his men.
As at the time of filing this report, Mr Williams whereabouts is not known owing to the threat on his life by Governor Bello’s men.
However, as close associate to the publisher said Williams has vowed to challenge the assault by Governor Bello’s men in the court.
“This attitude is condemnable and should be treated with all seriousness because we can’t imagine such attitude by a sitting governor’s security aide preparing for his re-election come November,” he said.
