Ondo community parleys on security

Police authority and residents of Akoko in Ondo Northern Senatorial District have met at Ikare-Akoko, headquarters of Akoko North East Local Government Area, on how to tighten security.

Through the Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC), the residents of the four local government areas in the district were advised to join forces with the police to minimise crimes.

The community’s PCRC Vice Chairman, Ambassador Blessing Ariyo, urged the residents to see police as their friends.

He advised them to share information with the police to minimise criminality in Akoko, where abduction, robbery and house-breaking have been rampant.

Ariyo spoke at the maiden meeting of the PCRC Divisions in Akoko, at the Police Divisional headquarters at Ikare-Akoko with the pioneer Area Commander, Abdulrauf Abdulrazak.

The area commander said there was need for PCRC members to disseminate information on how the new Area Command would be a role model for others in the state.

He said the residents should voluntarily give information that could lead to uncovering the hideouts of criminals to enable the police dislodged them.

Also, a community leader, Alhaji Ibrahim Kilani, lauded the roles of some monarchs in facilitating the take-off of the new area command.

According to him, the police cannot do it alone.

Kilani also lauded the pioneering efforts of the new commander and his team at reducing crimes in the area.

The community leader urged Akoko residents to rally round the area command to make the area safe.

Abdulrazak hailed PRCRC members from the 10 units in Akoko for attending the meeting, despite the short notice for convening it.

The area commander said the area would soon have a security committee.

He assured them that the police would rid the area of criminals with the residents giving the police credible information.

The meeting resolved to provide logistics for the smooth take-off of the security committee.
