The youth leader was said to have taken his Facebook page and condemned the insecurity in Hong LGA following recent attacks by armed men suspected to be Boko Haram members.

Kato, who hails from the same council with the SGF, labeled him “a disappointment and a failure” just as he described the two leaders as “useless men” in power who failed to secure the lives of residents.
