Who We Are

The need for adequate security in every fold or society cannot be over emphasised. Security of lives and properties of the citizens in any state of the federation is the responsibility of the state governor as enshrined under section 14 (2)(b) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. Accordingly, the Kogi State Vigilante Service was established in 2014. It is a paramilitary organisation committed to the service of the state, commissioned and assigned to provide additional security and curtail any security threat within the state especially at the grassroot-level..

Esterblishment

The bill for a law that established the Kogi State Vigilante Service was signed into law on 25th November 2014. The Governor, Alhaji Yahaya Adoza Bello noticed that the various vigilante groups operated differently without sense of focus. He decided to merge all of them under one umbrella without political party, tribal or religious affiliations. Consequently, a team led by the comptroller of vigilantes went round the 21 Local Government Areas of the state and recruited 1500 vigilantes. But out of the magnanimity of the Governor, he decided to increase the number to 3,000 vigilantes. In addition also approved and trained 500 extra to cover the border local government areas of Dekina, Ankpa, Omala, Olamaboro and Bassa Local Governments. This is to checkmate the activities of hoodlums, armed robbers and kidnappers from the affected areas.
