The poor might revenge - Melaye warns leaders

The poor might revenge, Melaye warns leaders

Dino Melaye, lawmaker representing Kogi west senatorial district, says Nigeria’s polity is heating up to the point where the poor will revenge against the elite and the country’s leaders.

In a series of message on social media on Friday, the senator warned the ruling class that there could be scenarios similar to what played out in some parts of Europe and Africa when the followers rebelled against their leaders.

He said “perilous times” were ahead.

“I am afraid of the revenge of the poor, it happened in Russia, France and recently in Sudan. It can happen in Nigeria,” he tweeted.

“Housing segregation put us the elite in jeopardy. Ikoyi, Banana, Maitama, Asokoro etc.  Our leaders + me beware of violent revolution. Perilous times loading.”
