Simon Achuba, deputy governor of Kogi state, says his life is in danger following the withdrawal of his security details on the orders of Yahaya Bello, governor of the state.

He said this while addressing journalists at his official residence in Lokoja, the state capital, on Sunday.

Achuba said he was about traveling to his hometown with his security men when the governor called them for a briefing.

He said on getting to the government house, the governor’s ADC took them to the office of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) to make a statement.

“They accused my ADC and orderly of gunrunning but both of them denied the allegation,” he said.
