The violence that took over the governorship and senatorial elections in Kogi state has resulted in the death of a nephew to Senator Dino Melaye, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the re-run for the legislative seat.
Melaye confirmed the death of Olorunjuwon early on Sunday, November 17, saying the deceased paid the ultimate price for the liberation of the Kogi people.
“My nephew Olorunjuwon who was shot at my pooling unit yesterday died this morning. My brother your death is a Supreme sacrifice in the struggle for the liberation of our people. Rest in peace aburo… So sad,” Melaye mourned.
