Barely 24 hours after the attack on Murtala, the APC thugs spread their terror to Dekina town.

The assault on Chalito in the early hours of Wednesday, according to eyewitness who rescued him after he was shot several times and left to bleed to death, was led by Muhammed Rufai.

According to the witnesses, Rufai was supposed to be Chalito’s close friend until recently he was recruited into APC thugs to silence oppositions in their various localities and towns with alleged support of Governor Yahaya Bello.

A video of the incident shared with KOKO TV NG on Wednesday morning, shows Chalito critically lying in hospital bed as doctors battle to save his life.

According to one of the eyewitnesses who spoke to KOKO TV NG on condition of anonymity because of his own life, said trouble started when Chalito refused to accept offer from an APC leader from that town, identified as Abubakar Rajab.

Rajab according to the witness had been on the neck of this victim (Chalito James) to come back and support his party but the boy declined, telling him that the support he had given his party so far shows no improvement and no development.

“Few days ago, the same Rajab invited Rufai to Lokoja, took pictures with ‘slave masters’ in Lokoja and he was given some cash gifts and he submitted the phone numbers of SDP supporters who are from Dekina that they needed to eliminate.

“They have been calling these SPD supporters including Chalito and threatening them to support APC or leave Dekina town but amidst the threat, they still declined.

“This night, James Chalito was terribly attacked by his former friend, Rufai with some other APC thugs in his house. They shoot him and inflicted him with serious injuries in the head and hands. They shot him at the back and left him to bleed to death but through the help of neighbours he was rescued and rushed to hospital where doctors are currently battling to save his life.”

However, the campaign council of SDP has continued to call on President Bola Tinubu and security agencies to urgently intervene and address the drift in Kogi State before it fatally undermines democracy in the state.

Meanwhile, KOKO TV NG‘s efforts to speak with the Kogi State Police Command on the attack were unsuccessful as the Command’s spokesperson, SP William Ovye Aya could not be reached on phone as his number was said to be switched off at the time of filing this report.
