…… CP orders Area Commanders, DPOs and Heads of Tactical units to take charge of their AORs

The Commissioner of Police, Ondo State Police Command, CP Salami Amidu Bolaji has said there is no need to entertain any fear about the security of Ondo State during and after the 2nd time inauguration of the Governor of the State, His Excellency, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and his Deputy, Hon Lucky Aiyedatiwa billed for Wednesday February 24, 2021 in the State capital and other designated areas for the celebrations.

CP Bolaji said the Police Command is aware of the demands placed on the Police Command and has therefore ordered the Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Heads of Tactical teams to completely take charge of their Area of Responsibilities AORs during and after the periods of the ceremonies by ensuring that actual visibility of their personnel is seen.

CP Salami said inspite of the overblown wrong perception of the security state of the State by some people; he is certain no State in the South-West geo-political zone of the country can boast of the standards of policing and security of the public space as seen in Ondo State.

He further said this is made possible by the cooperation and assistance of the good people of Ondo State and the Command’s synergy with the Military and other security agencies, including the new found Amotekun.

He however said by the standard of the swearing in ceremony of the Governor and his Deputy there will be a mass arrival of Dignitaries as well as other visitors to the State, and a tendency for criminals to think it’s an opportunity to make their mark, and so he is appealing to the good people of Ondo State to report immediately any suspicious person or object to the Police or any security agency nearer to them.

CP Salami said, the time has come for only right-minded personalities of the State to take the security of their lives and property very serious by cooperating and supporting the Police and all other security agencies in the State.

And for the Police Command, CP Salami says Ondo State Police Command will always remain miles ahead of the plans of these criminals and the extent of their criminality in the State, while urging every officer assigned for any duty during this period of the celebrations to ensure strict devotion to professionalism and best practices.
