The Kogi State Government has assured residents and travelers across the State that measures have been put in place to apprehend the kidnappers that attempted to poach our cherished peace and security and to also step up patrol operations across the State.
A statement signed by the Commissioner of Information and Communication, Evangelist Kingsley Fanwo disclosed that Government received reports about the twin attacks in Gegu and Obajana areas.
He, however, pointed out that the State Government is on top of the situation as the Governor has directed the State Security Adviser to coordinate security operations not only to apprehend the pockets of criminals who perpetrated the acts; but to ensure that the flash points are well covered to guarantee safety of lives and property across the State.
He added that “Government would stop at nothing to retain its ratings as the second most committed to security, as the lives of our citizens and those of travelers within our territories are important to us.”
He added further that Government would not shirk on her responsibility of protecting people within the Kogi State territory.
“As a Government, we are not prepared to negotiate with any criminal. We will dismantle their gathering storm with the Operation Total Freedom that has the capacity to ensure we retain the confidence of our people in the area of securing them and their property.” He stressed
He assures Nigerians that the situation doesn’t call for the red button as it is firmly under control, adding that the State Governor is resolutely committed to his iron-cast security approach.
He, therefore, advised Kogi people and travelers within Kogi territories to go about their lawful businesses without fear as the crime-flash has been doused.
