Kogi local government youths are demanding that the perpetrators of the Attack should be brought to justice.
If some various political Appointees does not have hidden agenda why refusing to follow any method suggesting by the chairman of vigilante group of Nigeria ( V G N ).
Again if S S A on security matters has really done well on the aspect of insecurity matters,why afraid of the peaceful protest organized by Gegu beki youth?
The protesters are only calling for the quick intervention of the government if peradventure they are not aware of the bandits terrorising our community.
The political patronage system in Kogi local needs to die.criminals like this have no business being in government,we are not waiting for any leader to speak on our behalf any longer,our voice must be heard.
Freedom of speech and expression.
Our politicans and some political Appointees are now using the lives of it citizen to play politics,the peaceful protest was not political but a call for action over the on going senseless killing and ilegal kidnapping in Kogi local government.
4million Naira was brought on table to tackle the issue of insecurity in our domains but it was squander,this month they demanded for 10million naira but 15million naira was giving to them by our Amiable governor Yahaya Adoza Bello, still yet they have not acted.
We advising the law Abiding citizen of Kogi local government to remain calm."
