Niger State Governor, Rt. Hon. Mohammed Umaru Bago  has donated 20 operational vehicles to security operatives to curb crimes in the Minna metropolis.

Governor Umaru Bago who inaugurated the vehicles at the government house Minna, expressed concern over the security challenges faced in the state capital and said he was optimistic that the vehicles would help curb the menace.

The Governor directed the Commissioner of Police (CP), Niger State Command, Ogundele Ayodeji to make effective use of the vehicles to address insecurity within Minna.

"I am giving you a matching order from this point to go after the hoodlums and bring them to book", he directed.

He also ordered that anybody that is found selling drugs, his building should be confiscated and demolished.

"This is intended to flush out the hoodlums and criminal elements within the metropolis in particular and the state as a whole and again we have realized that a lot of drug trafficking and drug-related issues are happening in Minna and therefore anybody that is warehousing drug dealers or Catel in his premises is at his own risk", he warned.

He emphasized that his administration will give zero tolerance to drugs and other forms of criminalities.

CP Ogundele Ayodeji who commended the Governor for providing the operational vehicles to aid their work in ensuring the safety of lives and property of the citizenry, assured that the people of the state will breathe a sigh of relief as his men and other sister agencies will swing into action immediately.
