Yahaya Bello’s aide, Edward Onoja was allegedly arrested by SARS for ‘importing Ak-47’

Contrary to reports making rounds that an aide to the Governor of Kogi State, Edward Onoja was arrested by officers of the Department of State Security Services, DSS, It was gathered that Onoja was allegedly picked up by the Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad, FSARS.

According to Leading Reporters, SARS picked Onoja after arresting some hoodlums with a lorry laden with what was said to be firearms and tracking devices, allegedly linked to Mr. Edward Onoja.

Onoja allegedly imported different tracking devices from Germany to the tune of N3.4billion. The tracking devices would be used to hack the phone numbers and monitor the locations of those believed to be antagonizing Yahaya Bello’s second term bid.

The newspaper reports that the lorry load of arms which contains AK47, pump actions and mini-machine guns were illegally imported into Nigeria to allegedly prosecute Yahaya Bello’s second term bid.

Meanwhile, it has been alleged that Bello is making frantic efforts to ensure that the case does not see the light of the day. He was alleged to have claimed that the said firearms and tracking devices were imported to be distributed to Nigeria Police, DSS and the State Vigilante Services to boost security in Kogi State.

  1. If some unlicenced state governors, government officials or individuals could illegally import prohibited fire arms into the country for selfish reasons, why the blame game on boko haram? By implication, some governmemt officials are the preponets of banditry and insugency in Nigeria (Who is now deceivimg who?).

    1. With this discovery, God has plan to liberate Kogites and by extension, Nigerians from the dubious act of some devil’s turned leaders. The Governor who refused to pay salary of workers of the state, cannot confidently inaugurate any viable project in over three years in power and being the most favoured chief Executive of Kogi state in terms of finances accrued to the state, is still very confidence of second term in the face of gross monthly performance. There is much that meets the eyes. Yet, Edward Onoja, Governor Yahaya Bello and their co-travelers still live in denial. What a shame. Our God in Kogi state is not a destructive God. GYB will surely fail.
