Karimi expressed concerns over the lingering kidnapping incident in the axis, without response from the security operatives, stressing that more than six people had been kidnapped in the past 48 hours within the affected areas.

The senator therefore called on the Kogi State Commissioner of Police, CP Bertrand Onuoha, and the Director, Department of State Services (DSS) to beef up the security in the areas.

Meanwhile, the report from the areas painted an ugly picture as the residents were said to be living in fear.

“We cannot go to our farms again, nor travel out any how. People are being abducted every day, particularly since last week with ransom being paid to the abductors. Many kidnapped victims are yet to be seen,” said Olajuwon Olamide, a resident of Isanlu.

The state police command’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP William Aya, promised to get details of the incident as claimed by the senator.
