Following the recent spate of bombs discovery in Kogi State, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Kabba chapter has raised fresh alarm to security agencies to help comb the city on the likely presence of more bomb factories in the town.
The Christian body in a letter to the state government signed by Pastor S.S. Ayodele called for the deployment of anti – bomb squad to the town to sniff out more likely points where bombs are manufactured.
Pastor Ayodele who is the Secretary of the Association said the call become imperative in order to check what he termed as influx of aliens into the town especially the Odolu Market which according to him is not a business hub centre nor a residential area.
The Secretary who argued that the market is gradually becoming “a den for all sorts of people” stressed that “if not checked, something worst may happen in the town”
CAN who also questioned the mass migration of certain people referred to as Bororo to the town called for the closure of business activities as from 6.00pm daily.
Kabba, which is the headquarter of Kabba/Bunu LG; and the political and social cultural centers of Okun people have been under numerous bank robbery attacks where dynamites were used in recent times while a bomb house was also discovered in the town by the SSS in March this year.
