The Kogi State Director General, Special Task Force on Illegal Smuggling of Fire Arms and Other Related Crimes, Elder Friday Sani Makama has denied that he was arrested by the Department of State Service.

The social media, including some mainstream media was awash with the news that the former lawmaker was arrested over alleged involvement in the assassination attempt of Social Democratic Party governorship candidate in the state, Alhaji Muri Ajaka.

Makama told the media that the news of his arrest was the handwork of mischief makers who want to destroy his reputation.

According to him, he is currently receiving training with the DSS to be better equipped in discharging the mandate given to him to stop the illegal smuggling of firearms into the state.

Makama explained that, since his appointment, he has been receiving several threatening calls and messages from criminal conspirators within and outside the State.

He warned that anyone behind the importation of firearms into Kogi State would be brought to book no matter how highly connected.

He said: “The rumours of my arrest do not come to me as a surprise. The DSS has a supervisory role both in the national and the State of the federation on illegal smuggling of firearms. The DSS has a lot of role in training and equipping me with the knowledge to be able to carry out this responsibility without bias.

“The nitty-gritty of the training is what I cannot disclose to the public, but be rest assured that, at the end of the training, whoever is involved in either sponsoring, or trading on illegal firearms, the current training I am undergoing will equip me to come after you”.
