The police have been asked to clamp down on the nefarious activities of herdsmen and kidnappers nationwide.
This call was made by the governor of Oyo state, Abiola Ajimobi, via his deputy, Alake Adeyemo, while receiving the Deputy Inspector-General of Police in charge of the Southwest, Foluso Adebanjo.
The governor asked that the police apply the same intensity being used in the eradication of the Boko Haram menace to the herdsmen and kidnappers situation.
He said:“The economy of this country can only improve in an atmosphere that is peaceful for businesses and living. We cannot do businesses in an insecure environment. Similarly, we will be scaring investors away when the environment is not peaceful.”
The DIG said Oyo state is one of the states loved by the Inspector-General of Police because of “its peculiar peaceful atmosphere”.
Adebanjo, who is on a tour of the region to assess the security situations, commended the governor for the relative peace enjoyed by the indigenes.
He said: “I have met with security stakeholders in the state like the Police Community Relation Committee (PCRC), Eminent People’s Forum, and traditional institution, among others to discuss how to maintain the current peaceful atmosphere in Oyo State.
“On our part, we will continue to discharge our responsibilities with strict adherence to the sanctity of human rights. We have warned our men that any police officer found to have used his weapons to kill or maim innocent citizens would be tried within 48 hours of such incident.”
