Fanwo noted that the rumour was “hatched to create panic in the state” by political elements who did not mean well for the State. 

He said: “We have no such in the state. We have interfaced with residents of the area and security agencies in those areas. It was nothing but a blatant stream of lies flowing from the evil fountains of the enemies of the state.

“The Kogi State government enjoys cordial relationship with its Kano counterparts and in fact, all the states of the federation.

“There was no truth in the story. However, we have charged security agencies across the state to be on red alert to ensure our people continue to enjoy security protection.”
