Governorship candidate of the Action Alliance in the ongoing gubernatorial elections in Kogi State, Olayinka Braimoh, has been arrested.
Braimoh’s media aide, Musa Yakubu, who confirmed the arrest to journalists, said his principal was arrested by security operatives in Kabba.
Musa revealed that the candidate and seven of his security details were nabbed after campaign materials were allegedly found in his car.
State police command spokesperson could not be reached for comment as of the time of filing this report.
Braimoh’s media aide had earlier raised the alarm over the AA candidate’s whereabouts.
Yakubu said, “The last time I heard from him was in the morning when he called from Kabba town, but all attempts to get through to him since that time proved abortive.
“His mobile lines have been switched off, including his entourage.”
