Kogi Speaker’s Brother, Three Others Kidnapped


The Speaker of the Kogi State House of Assembly, Prince Matthew Kolawole, has confirmed the kidnap of his brother, the wife and two others along the Kabba-Oshokoshoko road in the state.

Kolawole, who disclosed this during the house plenary on Tuesday, said the yet-to-be-identified hoodlums appeared in Army and Police uniforms and later demanded ransom.

The speaker, while drawing the attention of the state government and security agencies to the rampant kidnapping which has resurfaced in the state, noted that the incident happened on Monday.

He brought this to attention in a motion of urgent public importance, read by Hon. Oluwatoyin Lawal (PDP Yagba West), calling on security agencies to quickly swing into action in rescuing the victims from their abductors.

He urged the state government to further equip the police and other security agencies with more high technology gadgets that will help towards stemming down crimes and criminality in Kogi State.

Members in their contributions said the security agencies, especially the police should up their game in ensuring the security of lives and properties in the state.

They urged the commissioner of police to deploy more policemen to flashpoints areas in the state.
