The protests began peacefully with the support of many and was beginning to achieve results until it was hijacked by looters, vandals and other criminals who wreaked havoc on the public and private property leading to more mayhem.
Kogi state had its fair share of this mayhem as miscreants hijacked the process to create all kinds of trouble, including the disruption of the distribution of palliatives meant for victims of recent flooding in parts of the state.
The Coordinator of the kogi state World bank Appeal project, Sanni Abdullahi Ozomata described the development as a sad one which will have far-reaching effects, especially for this year’s farming season.
The ADP Managing Director, George Ogirima explained how the looting and destruction will create some setbacks in what it is trying to do, creating a modern farming system to encourage young men and women.
While the state and other interested parties await the report of its fact-finding panel of inquiry, one thing remains certain, it will require colossal sums of money and a lot of thinking and strategizing to restore what was lost to this needless spree of wanton looting and vandalism.
