Gunmen Kill Kogi Commissioner, Abduct LG Chairman by HenryThegreat1(m): 3:07pm On May 02
Gunmen have killed the Pension Board Commissioner in Kogi State, police authorities confirmed to Channels Television on Sunday.

It was gathered that the commissioner, Honourable Adebayo Solomon was killed on Saturday, while the Chairman of Yagba East Local Government, Pius Kolawole and some others were kidnapped.

The slain commissioner was said to be travelling from Ilorin to Kabba when his vehicle was said to have been shot at Eruku village a few kilometres to Egbe the border town between Kwara and Kogi state by some gunmen.

His remains had been deposited at ECWA Hospital, Egbe, while the whereabouts of Kolawole remained unknown.

Reacting to the incident, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Ayuba Ede, said an intensive investigation is in progress to unravel the perpetrators of the heinous act.

The abduction of the council chairman may not be unconnected with his concerted efforts to rid his local government area of hoodlums suspected to be herdsmen terrorising the council.

Kogi State has been experiencing cases of kidnapping and robberies, with many blaming the criminal activities on the deplorable section of the roads.

In recent times, several armed robbery attacks and kidnapping cases have been reported across the three senatorial districts of the state.

Just last week Sunday, police operatives attached to Ajaokuta Division rescued two kidnapped victims who spent four days in the kidnappers’ den.

Few days ago, the Senator representing Edo Central in the National Assembly, Clifford Ordia, was twice attacked on Okene-Lokoja and Lokoja-Abaji roads by bandits in Kogi State on his way to Abuja.

Ordia, who is the Senate Committee Chairman on Local and Foreign Debts, narrated his ordeal to reporters on April 28 in Abuja.

He said he was travelling along the Okenne-Lokoja and Lokoja-Abaji roads on Monday when the daredevil bandits opened fire on his convoy while returning to Abuja from his hometown in Edo State.

The lawmaker noted that during the exchange of fire between the criminals and the security operatives attached to him, three policemen sustained gun wounds.

He explained that one of the wounded policemen was in a critical condition but responding to treatment in one of the hospitals in Abuja.

Yeye Bello will not cry out against insecurity in his state o because of his doomed Presidential ambition...the more we allow this thing fester, the more difficult it will become to eradicate it.

It is high time the FG relinquished security to the States...Buhari and his team of failed team are bereft of ideas or are just plain indifferent to it...they have woefully failed the nation.

Getting more interesting everyday.

For the so called zombies shouting that ESN is causing unrest in the Southeastern region, hope you can now come to your senses and realise who the real enemy of the people are.
No one is safe anymore in the country and only ESN can salvage it at least for the south Eastern region.
The military has been compromised completely, hence handicapped.

It looks like some group of people are really working hard to hasten their conquest mission.

Buhari should continue to be quiet while the presidency continue to react with excuses for UGM.
We’ve said it that they’ll soon start coming for them.
