The Aide De Camp (ADC),  to Governor Yahaya Bello, Usman Shugaba on Saturday stormed the secretariat of the Kogi State council of of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), with armed thugs and policemen allegedly searching for ballot boxes and papers.
The ADC who arrived NUJ located at Lord Lugard road in twelve hilux vehicles with stern looking thugs and policemen say they have information that ballot papers and boxes are being thump printed at the premises.
The ADC and his men after ransacking the NUJ premises without finding anything incriminating left, but with a promise to continue in their search.
As at the time of the siege of the NUJ by the police, all working journalists were on the field for election duty, particularly in Okene where they covered the Governor and other areas. 
Unfortunately, the fierce looking thugs met only the operators of the bar and those working in the centre.
The leadership of the NUJ has however condemned in strong terms the invasion of the temple of harmless journalists who were answering duty call at the time of the invasion.
The Council demanded an apology from the ADC and states all those who invaded the council Secretariat unlawfully should be arrested and prosecuted.
