Kogi State Commissioner of Police, Ayuba Edeh, has confirmed the arrest of two persons campaigning against President Muhammadu Buhari in Lokoja.
The CP said around 2.30am on Monday, personnel of the command arrested two young men, who were painting buildings and pasting posters with the inscription: ‘Buhari Must Go’.
A statement on Monday by the Commissioner for Information, Kingsley Fanwo, described the protesters as “imported and sponsored youths, who came to the state to campaign against President Muhammadu
“The sponsored youths congregated in Benue State, from where they moved to Kogi State, and began to paint walls as well as display anti-Buhari posters that were printed in a South-South state,” Fanwo added.
He added, “We are placing it on record that the fanatical following of Mr President by the Kogi people is borne out of our faith in his integrity and quality leadership. Kogi is PMB and PMB is Kogi.
“The Kogi State Government hereby sounds a note of warning to all agents of destabilisation to steer clear of our state in their bid to play divisive, destructive, destabilising and debilitating politics. Kogi is focused on development and is committed to improving the living standards of the people.”
