Kogi govt reports N44bn loss to #EndSARS protest

The Kogi State Government has said that it lost over 44 billion naira during the looting of both private and government properties in the wake of the #EndSARS protest in Lokoja.

The Chairman of the Committee set up by the state government to determine the items stolen from warehouses in the state, Asiwaju Idris, said this when his committee presented the report of their findings to the State Governor, Mr Yahaya Bello.

Kogi State remained calm amidst the #€€€EndSARS protests rocking some states after Governor Bello addressed youths with a promise to convey their request to President Muhammadu Buhari.

However, hoodlums hiding under the guise of looking for COVID-19 palliatives invaded both public-private properties, carted away relief materials meant for flood victims, medical, and agricultural items.
