Murder: Kogi Govt Imposes Curfew In 5 LGA’s
  • PublishedNovember 9, 2017

A 24-hour curfew has been imposed by the Kogi State Government in five Local Government areas in the central Senatorial Districts of the State. Although there was no reason for the action, sources said it was not unconnected to incessant brutal killings in those areas.


Recall that recently, a labour leader was killed in cold blood alongside his friend after observing his evening prayers.


A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Kogi State governor Petra Akinti Onyegbule says the affected local government areas are Adavi, Ajaokuta, Okehi, Okene, Ogori/Magongo Local Government Areas.


The statement urged residents to comply to the directive as anyone who runs foul would have themselves to blame.


She said that “This curfew will last for 24 hours and it is absolute. No movement whatsoever shall be allowed.


“Government regrets every inconvenience this might cause and assures citizens and residents this decision has been taken in the best interest of the state.”
