Criminal Infiltrators Into our Dear State, Their Sponsors Must be Fished out -Ademola Adeleke
The Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke has summoned an emergency meeting of the state security council to review ongoing operations designed to checkmate criminal activities in the state.
Ahead of the meeting slated for this week, the Governor ordered regular patrols by a combined team of security personnel to stem the recent upsurge in robberies and kidnappings and reinforce the successes currently being recorded by the Security agencies.
“As much as I commend our security agencies for recent successes, we must now redouble our efforts to stop the activities of men of the underworld. We are to review current operations and launch statewide patrols.
“We must sustain the current synergy among the agencies. Hence, the police, the DSS, the Civil Defence, the Amotekun Corps and others must intensify joint operations.
“The criminal infiltrators into our dear state and their sponsors must be fished out as recent upsurge appears to be unusual.
“At the forthcoming security meeting, we will review the nature of the new upsurge and map out a detailed plan to arrest the situation. Drastic action may be necessary and our administration will give all the required support to security agencies to achieve the target of a crime-free Osun state”, the State Governor affirmed.
Governor Adeleke who commiserated with the victims and their families, reassured the state of his administration’s commitment to ensure the security of lives and properties, adding that since two weeks ago, top officials have been detailed to interface with security agencies on anti-crime operations.
“I, however, appealed to us to be security conscious. We must all become security whistle-blowers. Report any untoward activities. When you notice unusual movements and developments in your areas, inform security operatives.
“I also plead with residents of the state to be mindful of the timing and manner of their movements. For now, it is advisable to avoid late-night or early-morning traveling. We must secure ourselves, as security is everybody’s business,” the State Governor pleaded.
