Kogi State Government Pledges Strong Action Against Criminals Ahead of Governorship Election

The Kogi State government has reaffirmed its commitment to confront criminals terrorizing the state, assuring citizens of a peaceful governorship poll scheduled for November 11. The pledge was made by the state Commissioner for Information and Communications, Kingsley Femi Fanwo, during a press conference in Lokoja.

The Commissioner stated that it was the government’s responsibility to ensure that citizens could freely exercise their right to vote without fear of attacks. He added, “Intimidation, ethnic, religious profiling, and other anti-social and unconstitutional acts will be met with stiff resistance.”

In light of recent allegations of incitement to violence, the Kogi State government called on security agencies to investigate and hold those responsible to account. Responding to allegations of extra-judicial killings in the state, Fanwo stated that anyone attempting to evade lawful arrest or harm security agents would be dealt with according to the law.
