Operatives of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC) in a joint operation with members of the local vigilante group have apprehended a gang of kidnappers terrorising commuters along Idah-Ajegu road in Kogi State, Newspremises reports. It was gathered that the patrol security team ran into the kidnappers while they were terrorising commuters on the road on Saturday, May 1. The security operatives overpowered the kidnappers, killing two. They also arrested two others and freed two victims. Chief Press Secretary to Kogi State Governor, Muhammed Onogwu, who confirmed this in a press statement, said Yahaya Bello had instructed the local government chairmen, security agencies, vigilantes, hunters and members of the public to work harmoniously to root out criminals from the state. Governor Bello warned that the state was not a place for illicit activities and that those who engaged in crimes will surely be dealt with. "We will go after you through the valley, in the caves, on land and water. We will make Kogi a hell for you and we will root you out of our state using any means possible. Few cannot be allowed to inflict pains on the majority of our people,” Yahaya Bello stated.
