Kogi PDP chieftain Abubakar Idris Condoles with Victims of Police Station Attacks, Tanker Explosion
A chieftain of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and former governorship aspirant in Kogi State, Alhaji Abubakar Ibrahim Idris has expressed worry over increasing cases of insecurity in the State.
Idris condemned the recent attack on Okehi Area Command of the Nigeria Police at Eika-Ohizenyi in the Okehi Local Government Area of Kogi State by gunmen who killed a police inspector on duty.
He also sympathised with victims of the tanker explosion in the Felele area of Lokoja, the state capital.
The PDP leader in a statement through his media team noted that the latest attack was the second in less than a month after the Adavi Police Station came under attack in early June in which three police officers were also killed.
Idris sympathised with the affected communities and reiterated his call on the government to ensure the security of lives and property in the state.
“It is with a heavy heart that I want to use this medium to appeal to the State government and security agents to always be proactive to respond quickly to this type of incident to save lives and property,” his statement read.
“However, I wish to condole with the bereaved families who lost their loved ones in these incidents and similar incidents in other parts of the State in recent times.
“It is devastating to always hear that in most of these incidents, attackers often operated for hours without any interference from security agents.
“Nevertheless, I wish to strongly advise that nobody should take the law into his or her hand as it is our hope and belief that government will protect the citizens as required by the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“Government and security agents should, however, try as much as possible to bring the perpetrators of these heinous crimes to book in order to rekindle the hope of the people.
“I also appeal to the Government to beam its searchlight in those areas under attack to fish out the attackers who may be lurking around.
“And looking at the fire incident a few days ago, it appears that tanker explosions are becoming a continuous happenstance in Felele area of Lokoja which often led to the burning of innocent people beyond recognition.
“I want to appeal to the government to look into the state of the road and do the needful and also advise Drivers who convey fully loaded Tankers with petrol through the State capital to always take precaution and put the heavy-duty vehicles in good condition to avoid future occurrence,”Idris said
Breaking: PDP induces people to impersonate political parties, plans press conference.
Concerned citizens in Ogun state on Friday raised an alarm over the inducement of some buyable politicians by PDP governorship candidate, Hon. Ladi Adebutu.
The insider source revealed that Adebutu, who lost out in the governorship election of last Saturday, has slated a press conference where some people will impersonate the executives of the Ogun State Chapter of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) along with few politicians claiming to be Chairmen of registered political parties, with a promise of N2 million naira each.
The press conference slated for Park Inn Abeokuta, owned by Ladi Adebutu’s father will hold any moment from now.
According to the insider source, “Ladi and his party know they cannot win at the Tribunal because they are quoting a wrong section of the Electoral Act 2022, while ignoring the relevant and applicable section of the law. That is why they are bent on inciting and inducing the public instead of going to the Tribunal”
