Publisher of AljazirahNigeria Newspapers, Comr. Bassey Etuk Williams has been attacked by men identified as security aides to Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello in Abuja.
The ugly incident, which happened at about 7.30pm on Friday night took place without Mr. Williams provoking the governor’s aides.
An eyewitness who confirmed the story said Governor Bello and his men blocked Mr Williams from accessing his residence at No. 12, Benghazzi Street, Wuse zone 4, Abuja, with their cars.
Governor Bello’s Aides attacked Mr William as soon as he questioned why an innocent citizen should be denied access to a public road.
Beside the attack, Williams’ life was also threatened by Bello’s men who said they have their boss’ backing to deal with him.
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, Williams has lodged complain in Police Station and has vowed to challenge the assault by Governor Bello’s men in the court. A close source confirmed he will be launching a N1billion suit against Governor Bello and his men.
This attitude is condemnable and should be treat with all seriousness because we can’t imagine such attitude by a sitting governor’s security aide preparing for his re-election come November.
