Ajimobi tasks police on killer herdsmen, kidnappers
Oyo State Governor, Abiola Ajimobi has appealed to the police authority to clamp down on the killer herdsmen and kidnappers disturbing the peace of the country with the same intensity it crushed the Boko Haram insurgents.
The governor made the appeal through his Deputy, Chief Alake Adeyemo, who received the Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) in charge of Southwest, Mr. Foluso Adebanjo, at the Executive Chamber of the Governor’s Office, in Ibadan.
Ajimobi restated the need for the police to continue to collaborate with other security and intelligence agencies across the country to overcome the menace of kidnappers and herdsmen ravaging the country.
The DIG commended the governor for sustaining the peaceful environment he enthroned on assumption of office in 2011.
He said he was touring the Southwest to assess the level of security and to interact with the stakeholders on the state of affairs.
The police boss added that the meetings were also aimed at discussing mutual efforts required to bolster security situation within the zone.
He added that adequate policing was a joint responsibility of the security agencies and the entire citizenry, appealing to members of the society to contribute their quota towards the attainment of peaceful coexistence of all.
