Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has drawn the attention of the new AIG of police Zone 8 on the need to flush out some bad eggs in the police force that involve in aiding and abetting crime.

The Governor spoke when the new Assistant Inspector-General of Police for Zone 8, comprising of Kogi, Kwara and Ekiti states, Tijani Baba paid him a courtesy call at the Government House, Lokoja yesterday.

This is coming after allegation were made that some police officers were behind the increased kidnapping in the state, and have been giving information to criminal elements to escape without being nabbed.


The Governor disclosed that it has been discovered that when citizens volunteer useful information to the police, they in turn, disclose it to criminals, a development he described as very unfortunate.

He promised to give out over two hundred Police Patrol Vehicles to police and other security agencies to combat crime, as part of activities to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the creation of the state to be held on the 27th of August 2016.
