Kogi state Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has commiserated with the people in Oganenigu ward in Dekinal local government area of the state over the recent attacks by suspected Fulani herdsmen that claimed lives and properties.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Onogwu Muhammed, the Governor condoled particularly the family of the slain Oganenigu APC ward chairman, Hon James Adah and others affected by the ugly and unfortunate attack.
Bello called for calm, assuring that his administration will continue to phase out crisis entrepreneurs from the state and ensure that those involved are brought to book under the laws.
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 said the unexpected development as shocking.
He assured 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, 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.
