Wale Odunsi, deputy editor of DAILY POST missed death by the whiskers on Wednesday as a mobile police personnel attached to the Government House in Kogi threatened to shoot him.

Those invited were also scheduled to meet Governor Yahaya Bello at the Banquet Hall, Government House, Lokoja, Kogi State.

Narrating the incident to newsmen, Odunsi said it was divine intervention that saved him from being killed.

He said:

“when I got there, I called to the special assistant to the Governor on New Media, Joel Odaudu Minister, that I was on my way to the Govt. House.

“I got there and walked towards the gate. As I approached the gate directly opposite entrance of the governor’s wife office entrance, one of the protocol officials wearing White native charged towards me.

“In an unruly manner, he queried why I was trying to barge into the premises. So I asked ‘Oga, you didn’t have to shout at me like that. I was only looking for who to ask for direction’.

“Apparently infuriated by my guts, he dragged and pushed me away. Within seconds, a mobile policeman got up and slapped me. He used abusive words and warned me to moved away. But I kept asking what I did to warrant the treatment.

“At this point, the protocol officer and two mobile policemen were taking turns to hit me on the chest while pushing me backwards; one slapped me the second time.

“I calmly walked some meters away and told and called Joel, the governor’s aide. As soon as he came, the security officials cornered him and were trying to change the story.

“I hurriedly strolled to where they were and insisted to know why I was assaulted. By this time, one of the policemen I believe is superior and another man wearing a blue safari suit and white T-shirt warned me to leave the area of face the consequences.

“The policeman’s eyes were red as if thirsty for blood. He kept screaming that he will punish with me mercilessly. So I called his name out, Iliya Ali: I told him to his face that I will report the incident to appropriate authority.

“On hearing that I called his name, he reached for his holster and attempted to bring out his gun. He said: ‘I will show you if na your mama, your papa or your any person you wan report me to give me name’.

“He also asked the Governor’s aide to leave the scene so he can deal with me. All the while, he was trying to bring out his gun while the governor’s aide was asking him calm down.

“I sensed he might make real his threat so I stopped another okada and left the scene. I spoke to the Force spokesman, who sent Kogi CP’s number. I tried to reach him but it wasn’t successful, so I sent him sms.

“I have left the state already before my time is cut short,”‎ he narrated.
