The Oyo State Police Commissioner of Police, Nwachukwu Enwonwu, has promised to put a stop to the incessant killings in Akinyele Local Government by bringing the culprits to book.
He disclosed this on Thursday during a courtesy call on the executive members of Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Oyo State Council in Ibadan.
The Commissioner was welcomed to the NUJ Secretariat in Iyaganku by NUJ Chairman, Mr. Ademola Babalola, and other members of his executives said that the police will maintain a low level of crime in the state by working relentlessly to apprehend the culprits.
He said, “I am pleased to inform you that the crime rate in Oyo State has been relatively low and we are working assiduously to maintain that low level of crime in Oyo State.
“I will not allow any policeman to toil with the fundamental human rights of Oyo people and other citizens resident in Oyo. Under my watch, we will offer quality service delivery.
“I don’t want to take complaints against actions of the police reflecting brutality, reckless use of firearms or unprofessional conduct in the course of maintaining law and order in Oyo State”.
Enwonwu said that there won’t be any room for infringements on the rights of members of the public, warning his officers and men to be professional in the approach and performance of their duties.
He thanked the NUJ chairman and members of his executives for the fair reportage of their activities in the state, describing NUJ in the state as the best in the country.
“Virtually all the commands I have been to, the NUJ in Oyo is the best NUJ. I have never lost sleep since I came to Oyo because you have been very fair to us.
