New Commissioner of Police for Kwara State, Mr. Agboola Glover-Oshodi, on Wednesday in Ilorin said the command would soon flush out criminals in the state.
He spoke during a visit to the Correspondents’ Chapel of the Nigerian Union of Journalists in Ilorin.
The police boss said the command would fight criminals, promising that he would drastically reduce crime in the state.
Calling for support from members of the public, he said the command would collaborate with other security agencies to rid the state of crime.
According to him, the command has intensified daily and weekend patrols on crime hotspots in the state, especially in Ilorin.
He said, “My agenda is to fight crime in all its ramifications. Policemen are the first one that will be energised and gingered because without the policemen, who are the foot soldiers, we may not do much. We have started and I have told them that we should increase our weekend and daily patrols.
“We must work hard to fight criminals. We are not going to give peace to any criminal. My agenda is that at the end of my tenure we should have driven away all the criminals from the state.”
