” For those who are confused about my mission in Anyigba and it’s environs, I am out with my team to fish out the perpetuators of those who killed the innocent boy and their riffles that was used. We will clamp down on them.
” No political thugs or hoodlums causing trouble in Kogi State will be spared. Intelligence report at our disposal has revealed that political thugs loyal to SDP killed him.
