The administrator of Ijimu local government area of Kogi state, Toufiq Isah, has urged the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate Senator Dino Melaye for allegedly moving items meant for Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the North-east.

He stated this while addressing journalists at his country home in Okoro-Gbede in Ijimu on Monday.

Isha also accused the senator of stage-managing an attack in order to cause unnecessary tension in the council.

Sporadic shooting

Isha said that he only heard that Dino entered Ayetoro with policemen shooting guns sporadically to scare people, and wondered why he turned around to claim that he was attacked.

”If Dino cannot improve on the living standard of the people of Ijimu, he should allow them to have peace instead of causing unnecessary distraction,” he added.

EFCC probe

The council boss, who alleged that Melaye had never empowered anybody in Okunland which he represents at the Senate, called on the EFCC to probe the IDPs materials he has packed in his house.

”I am using this medium to call on the EFCC and the Presidency to investigate how items meant for IDPs in the North-east got to the hand of a senator who ordinarily is supposed to contribute to ameliorate the sufferings of the people.

”The items, according to information, were packed in his house at Ayetoro-Gbede. EFCC should also investigate and uncover the staff of NEMA who might have aided and abated Dino in that shoddy deal,” he said.
