Kogi urges DSS to intensify onslaught on terrorists

Kingsley Fanwo, the Kogi State’s commissioner for information, has urged the Department of State Security (DSS) to intensify its onslaught on terrorists operating in the state.

He gave the charge following the arrest of two suspected terrorists believed to have detonated explosives during President Muhammadu Buhari’s recent visit to the state. One of them is a commander of the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP).

The explosion rocked took place in Okene LGA and damaged a mosque located near the palace of Ado Ibrahim, the paramount ruler of Ebiraland.

Fanwo said, “The arrest of the principal characters has justified our position that enemies of the state are again breeding terror cells that [have] been crushed by the indomitable security architecture of the present administration.”

“If not for the master class security architecture of this government, the state would have been turned into a terror zone by its enemies.

“We hereby call on the DSS and other security agencies to prudently dig deeper into the matter to unravel the real intent of the attackers and proffer how to avert future reoccurrence.”

The commissioner said under the leadership of Governor Yahaya Bello, the state has built a security architecture to deal with all forms of crimes and criminality.

He added that “criminals and their sponsors would have no hiding place” in the state.

“If the criminals come in their numbers, they will return in their zeros because Kogi as a state will remain inhabitable for cowards masquerading as criminals,” he said.
