The Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone 17 has urged Nigerians to their part and give their cooperate in tackling insecurity in the country.
Speaking at the palace of Olowo of Owo, Oba Gbadegesin Ogunye after visiting the scene of the church attack in Owo a fortnight ago, appealed to the people of the state saying they are doing everything humanly possible to fight against crime in Nigeria.
According to him, he said “Issues like this have never happened and people are wondering, why Owo? We must say we are sorry for what has happened. But as law officers, we are going to put our ears to the ground and we will leave no stone unturned to make sure those who are behind this wicked act will be apprehended and faced with the law. This I must assure you.
“We have come to the scene of the crime and from all indications the place is situated in the heart of town and any rational person will be wondering what could happen and our focus should be how to go about rounding up those behind this incident so that they will be prosecuted.
“Furthermore, all the security architecture will be placed here so that such incidents will not repeat themselves anymore and other areas in the state.
“The focus is to give robust policing. We are going to engage with the community and we employed them to give us useful information and all hands must be on deck because security is everybody’s business.”
