12 September 2014, 13:13

Ado-Ekiti - The new Commissioner of Police (CP) in Ekiti, Frederick Lakanu, on Thursday, read riot act to criminals in the state and asked them to vacate the state before it is too late.

He gave the warning at a maiden meeting with senior officers in the state, saying they should brace up for the challenges ahead.

He warned that there would be zero tolerance to crime and criminality in the state.

The new CP was Deputy Police Commissioner in Delta before his new appointment.

He charged men and officers of the command in the state to always protect the ethics and values of the profession.
