Gunmen In Uniform Abduct Kogi Speaker's Brother & His Wife



Matthew Kolawole, the brother of the Speaker of Kogi State House of Assembly, his wife and two others have been abducted by unknown gunmen.

They were allegedly kidnapped on Monday on Oshokoshoko-Kabba Road by unidentified hoodlums who appeared in Army and Police uniforms.
This was made known on the floor of the state Assembly on Tuesday following the adoption of a motion of urgent public importance moved by the Speaker, Matthew Kolawole.

He, however, did not reveal details of the kidnap or if contacts had been established with the family.

Consequently, the House called on the state government to intervene and arrest resurgence of high-level kidnapping and armed robbery on Lokoja-Obajana, Oshokoshoko-Kabba and other roads in the state.

The House also urged the state government to further help equip the Police with more high-tech communication and security gadgets to enhance crime detection and prevention in the state.

The motion urged security agencies, especially the Police, to up their game in ensuring security of lives and property in the state; adding that more security personnel be deployed to flash points.
