Following the commissioning of the Forward Operational Base in Okene and other measures put in place to enhance security in Kogi State especially in Kogi Central Senatorial District, criminal elements have decided to test the will of this administration by crawling out of their hiding place to carry out dastardly acts against the good people of the state and Nigeria.
The Governor of Kogi State, Alhaji Yahaya Bello, once again reaffirms his commitment to make Kogi State safe for residence, transit and investments.
The Governor is aware that “the financiers and backers of criminals are still out there, erroneously thinking they are far away from our reach.
Whoever they are, wherever they may be, we shall go after them and bring them to justice. We know it is the intention of these criminal elements to keep Kogites in a perpetual state of fear by orchestrating fresh moves to unleash a reign of terror, however, their plots will be overwhelmingly resisted, as neither crime nor a reign of terror will be tolerated in Kogi State”.
The Governor urges law-abiding citizens and residents in the state to remain calm, go about their legitimate businesses and report all suspicious activities to security agencies to carry out necessary investigations and address them appropriately.
A safe Kogi is not an option. It is a prerequisite for development and peaceful living and together we shall achieve it.
