The new boss of Kogi Vigilante Service, KGVS, Commander Adinoyi Mariam Abdulrahaman, has asked criminals and other people with evil intention to vacate the state or face dire consequences.

Abdulrahaman issued the warning on Wednesday in Lokoja when he formally assumed office. He said it will no longer be business as usual for hoodlums, vowing to flush them out of Kogi as quickly as possible.

He explained that the command will continue to synergise with other security agencies to make Kogi State save for investors, adding that criminals planning to cause havoc should change location

“It will no longer be business as usual. I can assure all Kogites that the mandate given to us by His Excellency Alhaji Ahmed Usman Ododo is to ensure that Kogi State is safe for all. Let this be a note of warning to those who are enemies of Kogi State.

“For your own good, relocate from Kogi State as there will be no hiding place for you. The Kogi State Vigilantes Service, in collaboration with other sister security agencies, is fully ready to make our state unconducive for criminals. No matter where you are or highly placed, you will be arrested and prosecuted, ” he stated.

Abdulrahaman, a retired Navy Colonel warned against any forms of indiscipline by officers under his command, stressing that, any one who intends to sabotage his efforts in ensuring peace in Kogi State will be dismissed and made to face the full wrath of the law.

“The command under my watch will be aggressive in ensuring discipline in the system. If you are not ready to protect Kogi State and we discovered that you are undisciplined, we won’t spare you. His Excellency is determined to ensure that Kogi is the safest in Nigeria. When any officer intends to compromise this effort for their own selfish interest, he or she will be shown the exit door”.

He commended the immediate past Commandant of the service Hassan Saliyu Aliyu for his achievement, stressing that, his wealth of experience is still needed to make the security outfit achieve more in curbing crimes and criminalities in the State.

Earlier in his remarks, the immediate past Controller General charged the officers of the State to give all their maximum support to his successor.
