If Anything Happens To Me, Hold Gov. Wike Responsible – Dagogo cries out

Farah Dagogo, a Rivers State gubernatorial hopeful who was proclaimed wanted by the state governor, Nyesom Wike, on Wednesday, has urged the public to hold the governor accountable if anything happens to him.

Gov. Wike issued a warrant for Dagogo, who is also a member of the House of Representatives, for reportedly engaging “cultists” to disrupt the screening of aspirants at the State party office in Port Harcourt.

Ibrahim Lawal, the lawmaker’s media aide, published a statement on Thursday accusing the Governor of lying against him.
