Security operatives allegedly taking orders from the Presidency last week stopped Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello from boarding a Turkish airline flight for a planned trip to Saudi Arabia for lesser hajj.

According to Kogi reports, it was gathered that when Bello went to the office of the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo to get clearance for his trip to Saudi Arabia, his request was turned down by the Vice President who advised him to go back to his state and settle workers unpaid salaries. But he turned deaf ears to the vice president’s advice, and headed to the airport where he was prevented from traveling.

The report further revealed that security men were shown relevant traveling documents, by the governor, but the officers said they have no choice in the documents and that they were only acting on instruction from above that they should not allow him to travel.”

The Governor’s travel documents were reportedly seized by the security operatives.
