In a Facebook post, Asuku Jamiu Abdulkareem said the charm was discovered when maintenance officers and security personnel went to prepare the place to host some visitors for the flag off Rally.

“Forgotten juju item by impeached deputy Governor of Kogi. We found this at his official residence after he hurriedly moved out. This is really sad. Achuba has been informed to come pick his item.

“In Kogi, we believe in God, not juju. Maybe this explains why he is no longer part of the “New Direction” government” he wrote.

The impeached deputy governor who speaks on the pulpit at Knowledge of the Truth Church Lokoja also led a government delegation of Christians to the holy land in 2016.

Contrary to the insinuation that council executives were imposed on the people against their choice by the government, the governor stressed that the selection process of the party’s flagbearers was transparent and the consensus was reached even at the primaries to avoid the crisis.

“I am the Father of democracy I can never allow the imposition of candidates against the will of the people, that is why right at the primaries we decided to go by consensus so as to avoid crisis and the people decided who should represent them.”
