The opposition Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) has been barred from holding any political rallies in the Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi State.

Chairman of Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi State,

Abdulraheem Ohiare barred PDP from holding rallies shortly after meeting with traditional rulers and heads of security agencies on Wednesday.

Ohiare had allegedly accused members of the PDP in his Local Government of singing songs that he tagged to be abusive against Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello.

A statement signed by his media aide, Ochiji Obojo, confirmed the ban of the PDP from holding rallies on Wednesday afternoon.

The statement noted that the Chairman expressed displeasure over a PDP rally that was held last weekend, where abusive songs were allegedly chanted.

“The council Boss couldn’t hide his displeasure on the matter and emphatically expresses his dissatisfaction with the deliberate silence by Traditional Chiefs in Ihima for not proactively condemning the rally proceedings on any public media since the incident happened.

“The Council Boss in his usual quest to avert every event capable of plugging the community into a domestic and political crisis has ordered an immediate investigation into such nefarious acts by PDP against the State Governor, adding that the initiators of such vulgar songs must be arrested and brought to book by the security agents.

“He reiterated that his administration would not stand seeing any citizen of Okehi insulting His Excellency, Alh. Yahaya Adoza Bello and scot free.

“He further directed the DPO to switch into action for proper investigation, and to henceforth ban subsequent rally or ward meeting by PDP in Ihima till the perpetrators are arrested for prosecutions,” the statement said.
