The Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke has called for the strengthening of inter-state policing to stem cross-border criminal activities.

Governor Adeleke made the call at a security meeting with top police officers at the Governor’s Office, Abere, Osun State. 

The Governor at a meeting attended by the Assistant Inspector General of Police for Zone 11, Mr Akande Sikiru and Commissioners of Police from Oyo and Osun state cited inter-state criminal attacks as a major issue demanding urgent attention.

While commending the proactive actions of the Police and other security agencies, the Governor noted that strengthening intelligence sharing and firming up operational relationships among the state commands would stop criminals in their tracks before they launch cross-border raids.

Governor Adeleke said the recent interstate raids by armed robbers demand a review of strategies, expressing happiness that the best approach to addressing the challenge was to have all relevant operational Commanders in the same room.

Responding, AIG Sikiru, who commended the Adeleke administration for its governance and security strategies, assured the State Governor that the police service is re-strategizing to sustain the records of peaceful existence in Osun State.
