Speaking to journalists on Friday, the Director General of Media and Publicity to the State Governor, Kingsley Fanwo said the Yahaya Bello administration will not allow this ‘one-off incident’ undermine the successful security record in the state for the past three years.

He said the government is deeply saddened and will do everything in its capacity to ensure the suspects are nabbed.

“The Kogi State Government is sad over the attack on officials and players of FC Ifeanyi Ubah who were journeying through Kogi State to honor an away fixture in the league. 

“In the last 3 years, the State has succeeded in recording relative peace as the security architecture of the state has succeeded in putting the activities of criminals at bay.

“The Governor has directed the State Security Adviser, Commander Jerry Omodara (Rtd) to quickly rally security operatives to ensure those who perpetrated the dastardly act are apprehended and prosecuted,” Fanwo said.

He added, “The Kogi State Government will not take its feet off the pedals in ensuring a strong message is sent to criminals that Kogi remains closed to their nefarious activities”.
