Security agencies urge to beam searchlight on remote communities in Ogun

Security agencies urge to beam searchlight on remote communi

Former Lagos State Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Paul Ayeni, has urged security agencies in Ogun to boost operations in remote areas to curb the escalating crime rate. 

Speaking to reporters in Abeokuta, Ayeni highlighted his worry about the surge in kidnapping, defilements, robberies, and other criminal activities reported in these distant communities.

”I urge security agencies not to concentrate their operations only in the major cities. There is the need for deployment of competent officers to the remote areas for sustainable peace in the state,” Ayeni said.

According to News Agency of Nigeria, he noted that crime had continued to thrive in the remote communities due to neglect and inadequate security operations in such areas.

Ayeni, therefore, called for the deployment of additional and competent security officials in the communities.

The retired NSCDC commandant commended the state governor, Dapo Abiodun, for donating 25 patrol vans to the Ogun Police Command.

He, however, advised that the vans should be deployed to strengthen security operations in the remote communities.

Ayeni also stressed the need for effective collaboration with security agencies of neighbouring states to prevent criminals from infiltrating such states.

He added, “Such measure will enhance intelligence-gathering and the quick response necessary for foiling criminal activities and arresting hoodlums.”
