Former Kogi Deputy Governor, Simon Achuba Under House Arrest


The impeached Deputy Governor of Kogi State, Elder Simon Achuba, is currently under house arrest.

It has been gathered that, security men in their numbers and fully armed stormed his residence in Lokoja, thus, preventing him from going out or allowing any one to come in.

This development, according to sources has caused panic within the former deputy governor’s area.

It is recalled that the Kogi State House of Assembly had impeached the deputy governor on Friday over alleged gross misconduct.

Elder Achuba confirmed this on Friday night when he featured on ‘Democracy Today’ which was aired on Africa Independent Television, AIT, and monitored by our correspondent in Lokoja.

His words” As I speak to you, I am under house arrest. My security aide has been withdrawn. Currently in my house, security operatives from government house have taken over my residence. Nobody can come in and no body can go out.”
