The Tribune reports that the thugs numbering about 20 reportedly invaded the venue of an empowerment programme that Senator Ogembe, a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) federal lawmaker, held in Okene.

The thugs reportedly arrived at the venue with dangerous weapons early in the morning, destroyed the venue and injured several people who came for the programme including Ogembe’s supporters.

The senator however exonerated state governor Yahaya Bello from the attack. He blamed those trying to impress the governor for the incident and advised those behind the attack to stop it.

He urged them to find another means of assisting the governor rather than creating a problem for him.
