Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello has come out to say that Fulani Herdsmen didn’t burn down any school in the state.

The state government recently revealed this via a statement signed by the state Commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr Kingsley Fanwo titled, “PRELIMINARY REPORTS ON THE BURNING OF GOVERNMENT SECONDARY SCHOOL, ILUKE BUNU.”

According to him, the report is very false and misleading, and the tragedy actually occurred as a result of indiscriminate bush burning.

He added that the state government will continue their investigation but Nigerians should avoid jumping into conclusion.

His words, “The unfortunate burning of Government Secondary School, Iluke Bunu is a thing of concern to the Kogi State Government.”

“The State Government frowns at the hasty conclusion that a part of the school was burnt by Fulani herdsmen. Such unconfirmed conclusion could spark tension in the state.”

“Our preliminary findings showed that the inferno was as a result of indiscriminate bush burning by unknown persons.”

“As we continue to investigate the cause of the inferno, we sue for caution in making statements that can undermine the peaceful coexistence of the people of Kogi State and other ethnic groups in the State.”

“Kogi State enjoys peaceful coexistence with the Fulani, Bassa, Nupe and other communities living or doing businesses in the State.”

“The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology and the Chairman of Kabba/Bunu LGA, as well as the State Security Adviser, have been charged to unravel the mystery behind the inferno as those responsible, no matter their tribe or position will be made to face the full wrath of the law.”

“Education remains number one in our thematic areas. As a Government, we will resist any form of attack on facilities where we are building the generation-next Kogites that we expect to be sound academically and believe in the unity of our dear nation.”

“We sympathise with the Iluke community and all those affected directly and indirectly by the inferno.”

“The Executive Governor of Kogi State has directed for the immediate rehabilitation of the school to ensure academic activities are not affected. He has also directed the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology to immediately put temporary measures in place to ensure students at the school continue with their education unhindered.”

“The people of Kogi State should continue to trust the Government to protect them against any form of violence and other crimes.”
