Kogi State Government is sustaining the onslaught on criminal elements in the state as a gang of daredevil kidnappers met their Waterloo in the early hours of today.
Officials of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps alongside members of the local Vigilante Group apprehended a gang of Kidnappers that have been unleashing terror on Commuters along Idah-Ajegu Road in Kogi State. The patrol security team ran into the kidnappers while terrorising commuters on the road and overpowered them, killing two, arresting others and freeing Two victims.
The Governor had instructed the local government chairmen, security agencies, vigilantes, hunters and members of the public to work harmoniously to root out criminals from the state.
Bello has warned that the state was not a place for illicit activities and that those who engaged in crimes will surely be dealt with. “We will go after you through the valley, in the caves, on land and water. We will make Kogi a hell for you and we will root you out of our state using any means possible. Few cannot be allowed to inflict pains on the majority of our people”- Yahaya Bello to Criminals.
