Three persons were reportedly killed while several others sustained various degrees of injuries when rival cultists clashed in Lokoja, Kogi state Monday.
The speaker, Kogi state House of Assembly, Prince Mathew Kolawole stated this at the House plenary Tuesday.
He expressed worries over the spate of cultism and other criminal activities in the state saying that something urgent needed to be done to address the ugly trend.
Ruling on a motion of urgent public importance, the speaker appealed to the state government to rehabilitate all the street lights in Lokoja to curb the menace of hoodlums.
He also called for a review of the law on kidnapping and cultism in Kogi state, saying the trend was becoming worrisome.
”We are really worried over the spate of cultism in our state. Just yesterday, we learnt that three persons were killed and others injured. The injured victims are currently in one of the hospitals in the state. We can’t fold our arms and allow this to continue in our state,” he said.
