As kidnapping and other related crimes continue to rise in Kogi State, a military official said on Tuesday that the Nigerian government will deploy a special military squad to the state.

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai, informed the Governor of the State, Mr Yahaya Bello, of the planned deployment during a meeting with him at the State’s capital, Lokoja.

According to him, the Federal Government is worried over the increase in kidnapping and other related crimes.

The Army Chief was in the state with some of his men on a working visit to the military formation to see the challenges facing them and proffer a solution to enable them carry on with their constitutional responsibility of ensuring internal security.

He commended Governor Bello for providing logistics and other necessary support to security agencies in the state and promised that a special squad of military personnel would be in the state soon to curb the activities of the kidnappers.
