Nasarawa State Governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, has allegedly connived with security personnel to disrupt the press conference of the defeated governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in the April 11 election, Mr. Labaran Maku, which held at Mayi Suite in Lafia.
According to our source, Mr. Labaran Maku had wanted to address the press on his defeat and irregularities of the election but met heavy security personnel already at the venue, barring people from entering the place.
Daily Independent also gathered that Al-Makura stopped the press conference because Maku had accused him of conniving with securities personnel to rig last Saturday’s election in the state.
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, ISP Ismaila Numa, said he was at a meeting.
