The Kogi Government has debunked the allegation of an attack by herdsmen at Big Joe motor park in Lokoja on Tuesday.
A statement by the Director General of Media and Publicity to Kogi Governor, Kingsley Fanwo, described the news as ”rumor peddlers who are on a mission to create panic and tension in the State”.
There were reports with pictures in social media that there was an attack by some herdsmen at the park.
“Our attention has been drawn to some gory pictures on social media platforms, purporting that some herdsmen attacked a popular motor park in Lokoja and killed all passengers found there.
“We wish to allay the fears of commuters and residents of the State that nothing like that ever happened as all motor parks in the state are safe and peaceful.
”Our security operatives are also ensuring security of lives and property in the state,” he said.
