Insecurity: Makinde inspects security base in Oyo/Ogun border


The Oyo State Governor, Seyi Makinde on Monday, inspected the security joint base located at Mamu Village on the Oyo/Ogun state border.

Saga Gist gathered that the inspection was one of the efforts to tackle insecurity around the state.

Our correspondent further observed that the security base was established to tackle insecurity, especially cases of kidnapping along the Ibadan/Ijebu-Ode road of the state.

Makinde, while speaking during the visit, promised to secure all entry and exit points into the state.

The governor, while inspecting the base located at Mamu Village, Oluyole Local Government Area, a border area between Oyo and Ogun State border, said that the base is a pilot project and that the intention of the government is to secure all entry and exit points to Oyo State.

“This is a pilot project and we want to secure all the entry and exit points to Oyo State. This is the border with Ogun State. If everything works well, because we have CCTV Cameras out there that are being monitored from the control room.

“If anything is going on here, they can alert us so that the security agencies can deal with the situation appropriately.

“But for us, if we know people coming in and we can trace them or if any crime is committed inside the state and they want to run out, we can activate the process whereby they can be apprehended at the entry/exit points.

“I have all the Commanders here; the Commissioner of Police is here, the DSS Director is also here, NSCDC Commandant is here and they are all working round the clock to ensure that the people of Oyo State are safe and secure.

“We only need to encourage them and that is why I have come here personally to let them know that we are all together.”
