Engr. Musa Wada stated this on Thursday in a statement . The statement was in response to the killings of innocent people in Bassa LGA by Armed group.
Reports had it that over 45 people were on Thursday killed in Bassa Local Government Area of the state.
Although, there are conflicting reports regarding the actual number of people killed, the Media put the fugure at 75.
Every part of the state is battling one form of insecurity or the other as killings and kidnapping is gradually taking over the state
Musa Wada also said; with the manner at which the killings are going on unabated, Kogi state is gradually sliding into a lawless society.
Musa Wada call on the state government to rise up to its primary cum constitutional responsibility of protecting and securing citizens, and do well beyond condemnation on security related matters. Kogites are desperately yearning for concrete actions against all forms of criminalities. Silence is not golden given the most unfortunate spate of horrendous butchery of human lives in Kogi state.
Musa Wada further reiterate his principled position by condemning killings of innocent souls wherever it happens to be and whoever is involved. Musa Wada also condemns the generalization of criminals as representatives of the whole, thus leading to unjust stereotyping and scapegoating. We condemn all criminals, whoever they are and wherever they come from.
Finally, while we continue to express our sincere condolences to all the victims of these unfortunate killings, we are calling on Federal government and non-governmental organizations also, to strengthen their cooperation and/or synergy aimed at finding a lasting solution to these spates of killings and destructions.
