According to him , hours after the incident, Police confirmation from the State Command indicated that some officers were in Kogi State from Lagos to invite a resident but did not provide proper information on what their mission was.
“At the moment, it was confirmed that our founder is in safe hands of security agents where certain harmonization of business agreement is expected between him and his partners.
