Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Itodo Daniel Sule, Lokoja

Kogi State Gov­er­nor Ya­haya Bello yes­ter­day warned that there will be no hid­ing place for crim­i­nal el­e­ments to op­er­ate in the state. The gov­er­nor who spoke in Okene af­ter this year’s Eid-el-Fitri prayers to mark the end of the Ra­madan fast, in­formed that se­cu­rity agents had been fully mo­bi­lized to deal with vi­o­lence in the state.

Bello said the se­cu­rity sit­u­a­tion in the state had im­proved over how he met it in Jan­uary, as­sured that se­cu­rity of lives and prop­erty of the peo­ple re­mained a pri­or­ity of his gov­ern­ment. The gov­er­nor also used the op­por­tu­nity to sym­pa­thize with work­ers who could not col­lect their salaries be­fore the Sal­lah cel­e­bra­tion, say­ing the de­lay was caused by the screen­ing ex­er­cise.
