The Kogi State Police Command has warned political thugs and criminals to steer clear of the venue of Saturday’s inauguration of the Governor-elect, Alhaji Usman Ododo.
The State Commissioner of Police, Bethrand Onuoha, gave the warning in a statement issued in Lokoja by the command’s spokesman, SP Williams Ovye-Aya.
Onuoha said, “We are determined to deal decisively with any political thug or miscreant, who wants to disrupt the peace of the state.
“This warning became imperative in view of intelligence that revealed that some hoodlums are planning to attack guests/visitors, who will be attending the inaugural ceremony in the state.
“It further revealed that the planned attack is aimed at disrupting the peace and thereby creating disharmony among the citizens of Kogi.”
He warned that any attempt to disrupt the already existing peace in the state would be met with serious resistance.
