Police warn Oyo State kidnapping gangs

19 November 2015, 12:09Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Oyo State Police Command is taking the war to kidnapping gangs in the state.

This follows the arrest of six members of a gang terrorising residents in the region.

The arrest of the culprits was announced on Wednesday.

“We will not spare any effort towards the provision of adequate security and maintenance of peace in the length and breadth of Oyo State.  But, I must commend the governor for the provision of logistic support to the state police command,”   the Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, during a courtesy visit to the Governor of the state, Abiola Ajimobi, in Ibadan.

The governor commended Ararse for giving adequate support to the state police command, which he said complemented the strategies adopted by the state government to achieve the prevailing peace in the state.

He charged the state police command not to rest on its laurels, in recognition of the crime wave across the country.

“Policing should be based on friendly interaction and ability to communicate with the people. It should not be an opportunity to exercise undue power over the people,” Ajimobi said.

The governor also pledged the continued support of his administration to the police to further enhance the performance of officers and men of the command.
