Kogi State Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Bello has extended indefinitely the curfew imposed on the five local government areas in the state’s Central Senatorial district.
Kingsley Fanwo, the Director General on Media and Publicity to the Governor, Friday in a release, stated that the extension of the 24 hour emergency curfew which was first issued on Wednesday night was to consolidate on the security gains recorded so far.
The governor thanked security agencies for their efforts at ridding Kogi Central of criminals and criminalities. He also thanked the citizens for cooperating with his administration to ensure a safer and better State.
Bello assured the people of the district that their sacrifices will be rewarded with better security in the area to enable them pursue their goals.
It would be recalled that the governor had imposed a 24 hour curfew on the district in the wake of a series of assassinations recorded in Okene and Okehi, during the preceding week, and some other security challenges.
“The curfew has been extended indefinitely to achieve even greater results”, the government stated.
