Governor Bello made this known in Lokoja Saturday when he received the Chairman of Yagba West Local Government Area, Pius Kolawole, over a robbery incident in his domain and the success achieved so far.
The governor stated that no criminals, who entered the state to perpetrate crime, would leave the state alive.
“If 20 criminals enter Kogi, they will leave in zero,” he said.
Governor Bello noted that the state is not an operational free zone for criminals, adding that anyone who is caught would face the wrath of the law.
He commended the doggedness of the local government chairman, saying he had demonstrated capacity and bravery.
