By Wahab Akanji, Abuja

The Acting Inspector-General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris has ordered immediate deployment of a Special Strike Force to Kogi State to combat the menace of kidnapping in the state.

A statement from the force headquarters issued by the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Don Awunnoron Tuesday said the new outfit will deal with other crimes within the State and its environs.

“IGP Idris said the deployment of the Special Strike Force becomes imperative as the Nigeria Police Force can no longer watch innocent citizens suffer in the hands of dreaded criminals rampaging within Kogi State and its environs.

“He further said that with the presence of the Strike Force, Kogi State and its environs will enjoy peace and tranquillity, but however advised those deployed on the assignment never to turn themselves as demi-gods, but servants to the people,” the statement reads.
