LOKOJA—THE embattled administrator of Ijumu Local Government Area of Kogi State, Taufiq Isa, has expressed confidence in the judiciary over the assassination case brought against him before the court.

Speaking during a reception for him in Odokoro-Gbede yesterday, after being granted bail by a Kogi State high court, Isa said his experience would not deter him from serving the people.

Isa was arrested three weeks ago, arraigned last Monday, alongside four others, over the alleged assassination attempt on Senator Dino Melaye.

He warned his supporters against using his detention and arraignment to foment trouble, adding that since the case was before a competent court, it should be allowed to adjudicate on it.

The Acting Chairman of All Progressives Congress, APC, Ijumu council, Mr. Samuel Agbejide, also called on the party members and supporters to remain calm, stressing that the arrest and arraignment of the administrator will turn out to be an elevation in future.
