‘We Use Technology to Find Location of Kidnappers in Kogi’ – Fanwo 

The Kogi State Commissioner of Information and Communications, Kingsley Fanwo has disclosed that the government of the state deploys technology to detect locations of Kidnappers in Kogi.

Fanwo stated this at a media parley in commemoration of the 31st anniversary of the creation of the state.

The Information Commissioner said that insecurity has reduced to the minimum in the state because of the robust security architecture provided by government.

According to Fanwo, the state government has been fighting criminality digitally with modern security gadgets that are unknown to the public.

He noted that these technological security strategies are not made public because of the sensitive nature of security operations of the state government.

The commissioner said the kogi state government has a stranglehold on the Kidnappers and other criminals in the state.

Mr. Fanwo, noted that though the state is not an Utopian society where crime is nonexistent, the crime rate in the state is at lower proportion when compared with other North Central states in the northern subregion.

“The difference between Governor Yahaya Bello and other Governors in Nigeria is that, while other Governors run to Abuja to lament the security situations in their States, Governor Bello seats back at home to confront the situation head-on.

“Kogi state government is working with intelligence and superior security stratagem to curtail the current wave of kidnappings in the state, but we expect the media to report the events responsibly while we play our part to secure the state with maximum safety”, he said.

When asked about the state of the Kogi State Broadcasting Corporation that has been off-air for about two years, he was quick to announce that a modern digital Transmitter has been procured for the state radio Corporation, which when installed can facilitate broadcast productions from the living room.

The state -owned Newspaper, The Graphic, is begging for attention, but the Commissioner said that the advent of online Journalism has made Newspaper production in hard copy unfashionable, unnecessary and economically unwise for government since according to him, Kogi citizens outside the state read the Newspaper online with e-paper on the internet as they now have easy access to the state -owned Newspaper.

However, the Commissioner said that inspiring achievements of the administration are underreported by media.
