The Kogi State Government has accused politicians of being responsible for some security breaches in the state, including the recent attack at the Kabba Correctional Centre.

The state Commissioner for Information, Mr Kingsley Fanwo, stated this on Friday while briefing journalists in Lagos on the security situation in the state.

Fanwo said the state’s Governor, Yahaya Bello, had put in place security architectures to ensure the safety of the people, stressing that some politicians were trying to thwart such plans.

The commissioner said the state government refused to tag any ethnic group as criminals, noting that every group was carried along as part of the security architectures in Kogi.

“It may interest you to know that when the Correctional Centre at Kabba was attacked, the Fulani security group arrested some of the escaping inmates and called the security agents to pick them,” he said.

On the attack of the Correctional Centre at Kabba, Fanwo said about 126 inmates were brought back to the centre, calling on the Federal Government to strengthen the security agencies in the state with a view to avoiding similar occurrence in future.

He said particular security attention should be given to correctional centres where Boko Haram and other hardened criminals were kept.
