Insecurity: LG Scribe Wants FG To Revisit State Police


The secretary of Agege Local Government Council, Prince Temidayo Adeyemi a.k.a. Tem-Dee, has condemned the incessant kidnapping in the country describing it as barbaric, senseless, inhuman and unnecessary and called for state police to effectively provide security in the country.

In a statement issued in Lagos, Adeyemi said the office of the Inspector General of Police cannot continue to shirk in its responsibility in investigating and bringing to justice the perpetrators of kidnapping.

He said the kidnappers of the four journalists are a challenge to various security organs that will have to convince Nigerians about their competence, capability, and readiness to nip in the bud all acts of criminality across the country.

Adeyemi called for speedy but effective and efficient investigation of kidnap cases, adding that the culprits should be brought to book so that other kidnappers could be deterred from their evil ways because the inability of the police and other security agents to apprehend the criminals is encouraging others to continue in their deadly ways.

He advised the public to continue to pray for Nigerian journalists because they are the watchdog our nation and also appealed to the Federal Government to revisit the issue of state police which the former governor of Lagos State Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu had clamoured for throughout his tenure as governor.

He also advised the Federal Government to work out a modality that can safeguard journalists in the country by giving them enough resources and equipment to enable them  perform their job.
