MR Wilson Inalegwu, the Commissioner of Police in Kogi, has charged men and officers of the command to go after kidnappers and armed robbers terrorising people in some parts of the state.
Inalegwu, while addressing operatives of the 37 Mobile Police Force Command on Tuesday in Lokoja, said that criminals should not be allowed to continue to operate at will.
“It can never be business as usual; criminals must be forced to abandon their arms or relocate from Kogi,” he said.
Inalegwu restated his determination to rid Kogi of criminals to allow residents and visitors to move freely, and called for support from members of the public toward achieving that.
“We cannot fight crime without the support of the public. Kogi residents should assist the police with the right information,” he said.
