Police parade criminals in Ibadan

Oyo State Police Command   has pledged to ensure that the security architecture would be restructured and re-modified to clamp down on criminalities in the state.

Police Public Relations Officer of the command, Mr Adewale Osifeso stated this while parading some suspected criminals at police headquarters, Ibadan, on Monday.

He said the command has hinged on detailed stop-and-search activities, strategic intelligence sharing with relevant sister agencies, joint patrols across the metropolis and adjoining routes and deliberate intelligence-structured surveillance to ensure that the issues of insecurity become a thing of the past.

The PPRO said the command in concert and seamless partnerships with the military, Department of State Service (DSS), Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corp ( NSCDC), Oyo State Security Network, Amotekun, vigilantes and local hunters have resulted in the discoveries of criminal cells and hideouts, make-shift armories, caches of unaccounted lethal ammunition, military uniforms and gear in Ibadanland its environs

He noted that in the past few weeks, the command through strategic coordination of its operational and tactical assets took the assault to the doors of the criminally minded elements across the state, though at a cost, the command lost some of its officers who paid the supreme price.

He, therefore, called on caregivers, medical experts and traditional healers to report encountered cases of gunshot victims and injuries to the Police with promises of utmost confidentiality and protection of the sources, while residents alike are enjoined to jettison all negative narratives and perceptions about the police in exchange for trust and renewed sense of purpose.
