Dino Melaye, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate in the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Kogi State, on Thursday, claimed that he survived four assassination attempts in the state.

Melaye blamed the attempts on the All Progressives Congress, APC, stressing that violence is in the DNA of the party.

He disclosed this while featuring on Arise Television.

The former Kogi West Senator said tension has been part of the lives of the Kogi people since the APC came into power seven years ago.

According to Melaye: “I have survived four assassination attempts; I have had 12 court cases of FG vs. Dino Melaye, and I have been attacked severally. It is not new, as it is in the DNA of the APC to be violent.

“Kogi State is like an evil forest that needs instantaneous redevelopment and needs a messiah.”

The former senator said he hopes to be instrumental in ameliorating the pains of those living in the state.

He further said it has never been this bad in the history of Kogi, as the state is more divided than at any other time in its history.
