Akeredolu donates another Vehicles to security agencies in Ondo
Ondo State governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, SAN, on Monday donated another set of brand new vehicles to security agents in the state as part of the effort of his administration to fight crime and criminals in the state.
It would be recalled that the Governor had sometimes in 2017 donated ten speed boats to the Naval officers policing the riverine area of the state. Akeredolu also presented five hilux vans to the state Police command in 2018.
The Governor on Monday presented 17 vehincles to the security agencies in the state. The state Police command got five out of the seventeen while the 32 Artillery Brigade, Nigerian Army got three and the State Security Service was given two.
The Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Ondo State command, got three cars, while the Special Protection Unit and the Naval base in Igbokoda, got one car each.
Similarly, the Governor had presented one Vehincle to the Legions and one for the Anti-Kidnapping Squad.
Governor Akeredolu explained that some petty things could be resolved with patrols, and urged the security agencies to increase patrols in the state.
"Somebody came to me that people are defacing other people's posters, not necessarily All Progressives Congress (APC) posters. You can arrest them. If they know that your patrol is on the road, they will be afraid," he said.
The governor further commended security agencies in the state for reduction of crime, especially kidnapping.
