The Kogi State Government has taken significant steps to enhance security by providing an additional fleet of 65 vehicles spread across its 21 local government areas. This move was revealed by Elder Friday Sani Makama, the Director General of the Kogi State Special Task Force on Illegal Smuggling of Firearms and Other Related Offences, during a press conference in Lokoja.
Makama issued a stern warning to those involved in the illegal procurement of arms, ammunition, and the recruitment of mercenaries for violent purposes. He emphasized that such activities would not be tolerated, and anyone caught would face the full force of the law.
He asserted that Kogi State would not become a safe haven for criminal elements, especially in the lead-up to, during, and after the forthcoming election. The current administration remains steadfast in its commitment to safeguarding the lives and property of its citizens.
