Gov Ododo vows to bring perpetrators of Kogi killings to jus

Ahmed Ododo, the governor of Kogi State, has committed to using all available resources to bring the culprits of the Ogbe killings to justice and provide security in the area.

Allnews.ng had reported that bandits allegedly killed two people on Friday in the Ogbe community in the Yagba West Local Government Area of the state.

On Sunday, Kingsley Fanwo, the Commissioner for Information and Communications, paid a visit to the town on behalf of the governor.

He sympathised with the victims of the heinous act and told them that the government would do everything necessary to bring the criminals to justice and restore security to the region.

The governor informed the people that the state has all of the resources needed to combat criminality and terror throughout the state.

Ododo challenged the people to believe in his administration's commitment to eliminating insecurity in the area and throughout the state.

He did, however, warn the community not to take the law into its own hands by conducting revenge assaults, and reaffirmed the government's intention to pursue the culprits.

“President Bola Tinubu through the Armed Forces and security agencies is giving Kogi State all the necessary support to launch a holistic offensive on the agents of criminality.

“I assure you, Kogi will remain one of the safest states in the country,” he said.

A few days back, the Governor of Kogi, Usman Ododo reaffirmed his administration's commitment to tackling criminalities, including kidnapping in the state.

The Governor stated this in a statement made available by the State Commissioner of Information, Kingsley Fanwo.

According to Fanwo, the governor noted that the North Central region was experiencing insecurity due to the dislodgement of insurgents in the Northeast.

He said: “My administration is rising to the challenge of defeating the torrent of criminality waged against our dear state in the last month. We believe that the torrent of attacks on insurgents, bandits and kidnappers in the North-East has dislodged them and many of them are now trying to find their feet in the North-Central.

"All the same, the Kogi government is deploying an iron-cast approach to safeguarding the state from the fangs of these criminals."

The governor further noted that the recent success in the rescue of 21 out of 24 students recently kidnapped from the Confluence University of Science and Technology, CUSTECH, highlights the state government's commitment to addressing insecurity in the state.
