AUSTIN OKAI
Igala vanguard,civil society groups(CSOs),kogi patriots have written to President mohammed Buhari on the prevalent act of  lawlessness and high level impunity that characterised the reign of terror of his party man,APC governor imposed on kogi state in the last 15 months,the recent one ‎is the illegal detention of Comrade Austin Usman okai in the last eight days

In a gestapo arrangement,okai was arrested by men of special anti robbery squad(SARS) in Abuja and dragged to lokoja subsequently hauled into detention,charged to court,granted bail and.                 re-arrested ‎at the same venue at the instance of the state government

In the letter,the three pressure group drew the attention of President Buhari on the kogi governors unrelenting efforts to gag and exterminate individuals,groups opposed to his dogmatic style of administration


Part of the letter also alerted the president of the dangerous trend kogi governor is trending targeted ‎at people pencilled down as obstructive to his ideas of returning to lugard house within and outside his party fold particularly the opposition parties with special reference to PDP

According to the letter,the groups urged the President to call for security reports with regards to happenings ‎in kogi particularly the rate of criminal activities and criminalities that had been on a high pedestal yet the governor is going about demolishing the houses of perceived political enemies built with hard earned resources under the guise of fighting criminal elements and kidnappers‎ to achieve selfish political interest

The groups avered the efforts by the cronies of the governor to exterminate the life of a kogi senator,Dino Melaye  in his village recently  in the manner the kogi House of Assembly members were attacked during the crises with the executive sometimes last year

‎They told President Buhari in the letter that the same way the governor and it's cohorts are tagging people as criminals and kidnappers, yet harbouring same group of people to harass individuals and groups in every part of the state

Igala vanguard told the President of efforts by kogi governor and his cohorts ‎a premeditated arrangement to jail the social crusader Austin Usman okai if not eventually killed in connivance with security agencies drafted to kogi to breach the rights of kogites

It indicted the security agencies including the military men who had made themselves as readily available tools for the governor to perpetrate all illegalities against the kogi citizen ,saying if not checked,may overheat the polity and degenerate to tribal crises to reclaim people's freedom

The group urged the President to call kogi governor,yahaya bello to order and also release all kogite labelled as criminals and activist as that will guarantee the palpable breach of the fragile peace in kogi
