The feud between Senator Dino Melaye, lawmaker representing Kogi west, and Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi state could escalate further after the former released a video mocking the governor.
In the video posted on Instagram on Friday, Melaye was seen singing and dancing, saying Bello, who he once campaigned for as governor, will soon be jailed for committing electoral fraud.
He said in part: “I’m here to actually talk about his excellency, the governor of Kogi state, who threatened that many members of the national assembly will not return in 2019.
“I begin to ask myself why will any intellectually mobile character sound and speak like that. Even if one is to talk like that, not a man that has committed electoral fraud, who is awaiting trial and obviously will soon go to prison.
“I had a dream recently where I saw Yahaya Bello’s prison uniform specially decorated with a wonderful embroidery. So I will be shocked that Yahaya is threatening people not to come back.”
He then stands up from his seat and continued singing, this time in Yoruba language.
He continued: “Kilo tun ku ti o so Yahaya, kilo tun ku ti o so Yahaya, eni ti a be lori ton senu wuye, kilo tun ku ti o so, Yahaya.”
The song translates as “what more can you say, Yahaya, after you have been roundly defeated?”
