In view of the forthcoming State congress of the All Progressives Congress, APC scheduled to take place Friday August 11 in Lokoja, the Kogi State Police Command has warned politicians to desist from hiring thugs or getting involved in any activity that will cause violence and disorder during the congress.

Our Kogi State Correspondent reports that the Kogi State Commissioner of Police, Wilson Inalegwu stated this in a statement made available to newsmen.

In the statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Asp William Aya on Thursday August 10, Inalegwu assured the public that the congress will be hitch-free, adding that the Command has put in place measures to deal with anybody caught trying to cause public disorder within the State.

The statement reads in part, “The Nigeria Police Force, Kogi State Command wishes to notify the good people of the State that, there will be a temporary traffic diversion within Lokoja town particularly from Paparanda Roundabout to Post Office junction. Consequently, all vehicles coming from Natako into the town can either pass through the Naval Headquarters to Post Office Junction or New layout through NTA Roundabout till the end of the convention”.

The Commissioner of Police urged the good people of the State to adhere to the advisory, while assuring them of the Command’s determination to ensure adequate security of lives and property in the State.
