Attempted robbery: Iwo monarch commends Osun police

The Oluwo of Iwo, Oba AbdulRasheed Adewale Akanbi, has commended what he called the gallantry of men of the Nigeria Police Force, Osun State Command in thwarting armed robbers’ attempt to rob banks in Ikirun recently.

Oba Akanbi also lauded Governor Rauf Aregbesola for his foresight in considering security as the first major thing to put in place ahead of everything, adding that if not for the adequate provisions that had been made for the police by the Aregbesola administration, the attempted robbery would have been successful.
 
The monarch made the commendation in a statement signed by the spokesperson for his palace,  Prince Dauda Abimbola.
 
According to him, without adequate security, investments whether local or foreign, would remain a mirage.
 
“There is no doubt that Osun is impregnable to criminals and this is commendable. This can easily be attributed to the foresight of Governor Aregbesola in considering security most paramount. I am aware of the state’s heavy investment in security equipment.
 
“I am aware of about 25 highly sophisticated Armoured Personnel Carriers which have been provided for the police which are found on our roads in Osun. I am also aware of the many patrol vans available for security agents. Everywhere you go, there is a sense of security because you see highly motivated men and women of the Nigeria Police.
 
“What happened in our state on that fateful Friday was yet another test case of the preparedness of our security agencies to combat crime. We must congratulate the government for this and we most salute the gallantry of the officers, who showed confidence and prevented the men from their evil plot,” the Oluwo remarked.
 
Oluwo, however, urged government and the police not to relent, adding that criminals of today always employ new tactics to overwhelm their victims.
 
He added: “I want to urge the government and the police to intensify efforts in the area of security. Our attempt to promote our culture through tourism will be a mirage if visitors feel unsafe. I also urge residents of the state to be vigilant while cooperating with the law enforcement agencies in their efforts to make Osun uncomfortable for criminals.”
