Bread tax is evil, we are investigating those behind it - Yahaya Bello

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State has vowed to investigate and punish those behind the imposition of a bread tax in the northcentral state, describing the development as evil. 

“The particular incident of bread tax is being looked into as I speak, we are investigating those that are behind this,” the governor, 45, said while briefing the press after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja on Tuesday.

“It is evil and it is unaccepted, to say the least. I have ordered the Head of Service to issue queries to those that are responsible and they will face the law accordingly.”

Governor Bello while explaining that he held the meeting with the Nigerian leader to inform him about the challenges the state is facing, and the developments recorded so far, noted that security agencies are working with local vigilante groups to curb crime.

He also credited his grassroots leadership style for restricting lootings in the Confluence State in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests.
