Kogi Engages Hunters to Tackle Insecurity

The Kogi State Government has approved the recruitment of 1,050 hunters to tackle insecurity in the state.

The State House of Assembly had granted the request from the executive arm, citing a shortage of security personnel and the need to end criminal activities in the state.

The Nigeria Hunters and Forest Security Service (NHFSS) commended the move, stating that it will help flush out criminal elements operating in the state’s forested regions.

The NHFSS Commandant-General, Dr. Joshua Osatimehin urged other states to emulate Kogi’s example through engaging hunters to fight inscurity.

The hunters will be recruited from all 21 Local Government Areas, with their salaries paid by the respective LGAs.
