The Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello, has called for calm over the recent attacks on communities in Oganenigu Ward of Dekina Local Government Area of the State by suspected herdsmen.
The message is contained in a press statement on Sunday signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Onogwu Muhammed.
Bello while describing the attack as a calculated assault on the peace-loving people of Oganenigu who have enjoyed relative peace and security, stated that his administration will continue to phase out crisis entrepreneurs from the state and ensure that those involved shall be brought to book under the laws.
Governor Bello described the unexpected development as shocking while assuring that his administration shall commit every available resource to hunt down the criminal actors and make them pay.
He stated that the government will never bow to the machinations of heartless elements in its resolve to rid the state of criminals.
He commiserated with the people in Oganenigu, particularly the family of the slain Oganenigu APC ward chairman, Hon. James Adah and others affected by the ugly and unfortunate attack while urging the people to remain calm.
He however advised the people not to take laws into their hands as security agencies have been swiftly mobilised and deployed to the troubled areas to restore normalcy.
With early deployment of security operatives, normalcy has since returned to Oganenigu.
