On Friday afternoon, InsideOyo reported bow the governor’s hotel was invaded by armed masked operatives ahead of the Saturday’s gubernatorial election.
The masked security operatives arrived the Suitorial Hotels, Lokoja, located along Stadium Road, where the governor and some members of the PDP Campaign Council were lodged at about 12.50 pm, shooting sporadically and attempting to break into the hotel rooms.
