Soldiers on election duty in the Igalamela LGA of Kogi State early Saturday morning intercepted and arrested the council chairman, Onoja James Omachonu, and several supporters of the APC for being in possession of ammunition and lots of cash.

The soldiers impounded the cash running into millions of naira as well as a large cache of ammunition. This comes as Kogo residents go to the polls to vote in a new governor for the state. The money and the ammunition were packed in several ‘Ghana-must-go’ bags and the ammunition.

The money and ammunition were allegedly meant for use during the election. A video circulating online shows the suspects sitting on the floor near an army checkpoint. In a viral video, both the council chairman and his gang were seen expressing regrets and pleading for forgiveness but the soldiers did not oblige.
