As part of efforts to reduce the spate of insecurity in the state, the Kogi State House of Assembly has approved the recruitment of 1050 hunters to strengthen the security architecture.

The decision was announced during plenary on Wednesday, June 19, in Lokoja, the state capital.

A letter was reportedly forwarded to the state assembly requesting approval of the recruitment of 50 hunters each for the 21 local government areas of the state.

The letter was sent to the House by the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Salami Deedat.

After reading the letter, Speaker Aliyu Umar Yusuf noted that it was previously resolved by the lawmakers that given the security challenges in the State, and the shortage of manpower, there was a need for recruitment to take place.

In a voice vote, the legislators unanimously approved the recruitment of 1050 hunters, adding that, the payment of their salaries would be shouldered by the caretaker chairmen of the local government.
