Mr Ayuba Ede, Commissioner of Police in Kogi Stae
The Challenged Parenthood Initiatives, a Non-Governmental Organisation, has condemned in strong terms the recent attack on a Kogi based journalist working with the Confluence News Network/Grace FM.
In a statement signed by the Executive Director, CPI, Eunice Agbogun, the organisation described the attack on the Manager News, Olatunji Odimayo, as most unfortunate.
The CPI in the statement said the attack has once again proven that security agencies need to step up their efforts, pointing out that it is regrettable that no arrest has been made several days after the dastardly act.
CPI called on the security agencies, the NDLEA and the Kogi State government to rise up to their responsibilities by ensuring that the perpetrators were apprehended without further delay.
The statement lamented that the attackers who were said to be engaged in illicit drugs and peddling, which ought to have narrowed and make the arrest of the perpetrators easy, however, expressed worry that the attackers are yet to be brought to book.
The CPI commiserate with the victim of the attack and wished him quick recovery.
