2019: APC Boycotts Kogi Peace Meeting
The All Progressives Congress has boycotted a parley organised by the state Police Command initiated by the Police commissioner, Ali Janga.
The state governor, Yahaya Bello was alleged to have ordered the party's leadership not to attend.
The party’s absence seemed to have given credence that the state government was behind the alleged transfer of Janga out of the state barely few hours after the meeting.
Janga had organised the forum on December 24, 2018 to broker peace among warring political stakeholders, especially in Kogi Central District.
It was gathered that the senatorial candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP) in Kogi Central Senatorial District, Natasha Akpoti, at the meeting, urged the Police to uphold the rule of law and consider her petitions.
Natasha also aired her displeasure at the actions of the Sole Administrators of Okehi and Adavi, Local Government Areas, who she accused of grooming a militia called “Bakassi Boys.”
Janga has been transferred to Bauchi, while the two Deputy Commissioners of Police, Muhammed Barde, and Monday Kuriyas had also been redeployed.
