“Please you need to show your colleagues how you have been able to tackle insecurity in your state, that is very, very important because they are overwhelmed by insecurity even with the effort of our men across the states.
We know how kidnapping, armed robbery, hired killer were lucrative businesses in Kogi before your arrival. In fact, Boko Haram established academy and training centre in the central part of your state in 2014.
In 2015, under the former administration, your State recorded the worst attack in history; 19 Christian worshipers were gruesomely murdered in Church by Boko Haram, in Okene.
Before you came onboard, in 2015, alone, we recorded 13 bank robbery cases in Kogi State during which our personnel deployed to the banks lost their lives but since you came, Kogi has not recorded bank robbery case in over three years.
In fact, between 2007-2014, thuggery and political assassination were major problems confronting the state then but today you have eliminated these social ills, it is a big plus to your administration.
You know that the police force hardly give award to anybody, organization or group but as a principal law enforcement agency in Nigeria with 36 states commands, we know how well you have done in the area of security. This was why my predecessor conferred an award on you in 2017, and you have not relented so, I urged you to keep it up”.
