The Edo State Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro, has commended Governor Godwin Obaseki for donating 15 operational vehicles to the Police Command and for improving security in the state.
Addressing journalists at the State Command Headquarters, Yaro said the provision of equipment to the Police has helped in curbing crime in Edo.
He said, “The governor has equally denoted 15 new operational vehicles to the police command, an elaborate CCTV camera system that covers almost every strategic place in the state capital has been emplaced.
“Edo state remains top in terms of logistics and preparedness to confront criminality. The Edo Security Network has been re-organized under the able leadership of Mr. Godwin Obaseki as he has substantially rehabilitated part of Ogida Police Training School to provide the training space for members of Edo Security Network”.
Yaro reassured that the security agencies in the state are not going to relent in operationalising the new security configuration, noting, “We will use all measurable apparatus of power to dominate and frustrate and terminate kidnappers. Our main objective is basically to ensure that kidnapping is curbed.
Yaro said the state has the anti-grazing law that prohibits open-grazing of cattle and other livestocks, adding, “this law was signed by the Governor of Edo State on the 27th of May 2022, and as a lead agency in internal security it behooves on us to enforce it.”
