The Secretariat is located directly opposite the Lokoja Local Government Area along Ibrahim Babangida Way.

The SDP governorship candidate, Mrs. Natasha Akpoti, who visited the Secretariat on Monday morning accused the state governor, Yahya Bello of being behind the assault. she stressed that the APC National Secretariat turned deaf ears to the attack and this action can mean nothing but support to the happenings.

However, the Director-General, media, and publicity to the governor, Kingsley Fanwo, rebutts Natasha Akpoti’s claim emphasizing that the state governor is against violence and ensures peaceful election.

 Supporting Kingsley Fanwo, the state police commissioner, Hakeem Busari asserts how absurd it is for anyone to accuse the police of perpetrating such atrocities. He stressed that as security agents, the police department have ordered an investigation into the immediate and remote causes of the ugly accident.
