Gov Ododo vows to make Kogi safe, unveils 105 vehicles, 44 motorcycles for vigilantes

Kogi state Governor, Ahmed Usman Ododo, has vowed to make the state safe and secured, even as he warned criminal elements to vacate the state or face the full wrath of the law.
Governor Ododo stated this while unveiling 105 new operational vehicles and 42 motorcycles for Kogi State Vigilante Service on Friday in Lokoja.
According to him, the operational security vehicles which is the first installment of several hundreds to be provided over the next few weeks will advance the safety and security of lives and property in all parts of the state.
He added that this effort stands as one of the most significant operational response to upsurge in criminal activities in some parts of the state.
While assuring that the state government would not leave any stone unturn to provide adequate security of life and property, Governor Ododo said to achieve the objectives of the renewed security programmes and policies, Kogi state must remain safe and secure for everyone.
“The recent launch of the Metropolitan Quick Response in Lokoja and other major towns in the state and this unveiling of operational vehicles are among series of evolving security measures geared towards ensuring that we keep our environment safe and to build on the solid foundation of the security architecture laid by the immediate past administration in the state.
“As we embark on consistent review of the security situation in the state, let me state unequivocally that our resolve to maintain law and order in all parts of the state is total and the fight against criminals in our state must be won.

“We cannot, and we will not allow criminal elements to undermine the progress and prosperity we have worked so hard to achieve in our state” the governor stated.
