Kogi State government has alleged that Peoples Democratic Party senatorial candidate Natasha Akpoti has links with terrorists and has called on the Department of State Services to investigate her.
According to Kogi State commissioner for information, Kingsley Fanwo, Miss Akpoti who ran against governor Yahaya Bello in the last governorship election in the State has been in contact with one Safiu who was allegedly involved in St Francis Catholic Church Owo attack.
Mr. Fanwo said in a statement: “It is worrisome for the PDP that Natasha represents to come out openly to identify with Safiu, a terror suspect that is linked to the bloody attack on a church in Owo that led to the death of scores of worshipers.
“It was a thing of relief to the people of Kogi Central that security agencies were able to apprehend their Chief Tormentor. Criminality doesn’t know political party. A criminal is a criminal and should be treated as such.”
“The Kogi State Government will not allow a marriage between terrorism and politics. Nigeria is doing everything possible now to win the battle against terrorism. Kogi State under Governor Yahaya Bello has won many awards in the area of security, the most recent being the one presented by the President and Commander in Chief of the Nigerian Armed Forces, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, in recognition of how the administration has turned one of the most dangerous states in Nigeria to one of the safest states today.”
