The Ekiti State Police Command says it has commenced a holistic overhaul of police duties to rise to the increasing cases of kidnapping in the state.

The Ekiti State Police Commissioner, Mr Babatunde Mobayo, said the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) unit of the police, has been decentralised to increase patrols across the 16 Local government areas of the state.

Mobayo spoke in Ado Ekiti on Saturday while reacting to the efforts being taken by the command to curb cases of kidnappings in the state.

The police boss, who spoke through the Command’s Public Relations Officer, ASP Sunday Abutu, said the strategies put in place have started yielding results.

“We knew that kidnapping was a major challenge in our Command in 2020 and if you observe very well, you would realise that the cases are reducing even before Christmas and new year festivities.

“The last issue we experienced on December 31 was a self- kidnap and the person behind this and his syndicates who were perpetrators of this to extort a sum of N250,000 from a woman had been arrested.

“Due to a change of operational strategies, the operation RRS is now operating in all the local governments and our patrol teams are all over the roads monitoring situations.

“We are determined to fight kidnapping in Ekiti and we are ready to work with Vigilante groups, Amotekun corps, Agbekoya, and local hunters to achieve this task”, he said.

Following controversies surrounding the operations of the Amotekun corps in Oyo State, particularly in respect to alleged mishandling of firearms, Mobayo assured that such will not be experienced in Ekiti.

“The police as a superintending body is monitoring all other paramilitary bodies in Ekiti. To the best of our knowledge, the Ekiti Amotekun corps has been professional in their duties.

“And they are cooperating with us to fight and reduce crime in Ekiti”, he said.
