Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Us­man A. Bello, Lokoja

Mo­torists and com­muters trav­el­ling along the Ay­ingba road in Kogi State have called on the state po­lice com­mis­sioner, Seidu Madawaki, to in­crease po­lice pres­ence on the road to check rob­bery.

Some of the mo­torists who spoke with Daily Trust at the weekend lamented in­ces­sant rob­bery op­er­a­tions on the road, leading to loss of cash and valu­ables. One of the mo­torists, Is­sac Eli­jah, said the rob­bery oper­a­tion usu­ally take place be­tween Itobe and Ay­ingba.

“Ev­ery time you travel along Ay­ingba road, you would run into armed rob­bers dis­pos­ing people of their be­long­ings. They rob as if there are no se­cu­rity agents in the area. We want to po­lice to come to our aid”, he said.

A com­muter, Ejima Christ, said the de­vel­op­ment is wor­ri­some as the ban­dits op­er­ate on a daily ba­sis.

He called on the po­lice com­mis­sioner to look into the mat­ter. Oth­ers, who spoke to our cor­re­spon­dent, all called for im­proved se­cu­rity on the road.
