Kogi State Governor, Alh. Yahaya Bello on Sunday called for calm over the recent attacks on communities in Oganenigu Ward of Dekina Local Government Area of the State by suspected herdsmen.
While describing the vile and satanic attack as a calculated assault on the peace-loving people of Oganenigu who have enjoyed relative peace and security, Bello states that his administration will continue to face 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, assuring that his administration shall commit every available resource to hunt down the criminal actors and make them pay stating that the Government will never bow to the machinations of heartless elements in its resolves to rid the state of criminals.
He commiserates with the people in Oganenigu, particularly the family of the slain Oganenigu APC ward chairman, Hon James Adah and others affected by this ugly and unfortunate attack while urging the people to remain calm and vigilant.
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.
