Community members hiding criminals would be arrested — Yahaya Bello

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has threatened to arrest members of communities found to be hiding criminals in his state.

The Governor spoke in his Ebira language shortly after observing two-Eid Rakkah to mark Eid-el-Kabir on Saturday at his Agassa settlement in Okene Local Government Area of Kogi State.

Bello made it clear that he is determined to return the good old days where security at personal and family levels was a beautiful to behold, advising all to join his government in this matter.

In his words, “In the good old days in Ebira land, one could go to sleep and or go out with one’s door wide open, and return to meet everything in the house intact. But not so now.

” I’m determined to return those good old days.

“And I seek the support and cooperation of all of you, because the government cannot do it alone.”

The Governor stressed the need for people to begin to take interest on who are their neighbours and to identify the bad ones among them.

“Report the bad ones to the government and the relevant authorities. However, if it is the government that discovers the bad ones in your community, all the people in the community will be arrested.”

He, therefore, thanked his people for the support they gave him, leading to the achievements his government has so far attained.

He also expressed appreciation for their support for his move at capturing the Presidential ticket of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He admitted that he could not make it but vowed: “next time, I will succeed.”
