The Ogun State Police Command is to step up security around all churches and mosques in Ogun State.

State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Okoye Ikemefuna, who said this while addressing stakeholders in Abeokuta, on Saturday, explained that the action was  taken to secure places of worship against any form of attack.

He said, “We are doing all within the power to make sure that we reduce crime to its barest minimum and to also make everyone sleep with their two eyes closed. The command will deploy more men in some strategic places that I will not like to mention, all in a bid to ensure adequate security of lives and properties.”

Okoye advised the groups that attended the meeting not to hesitate to volunteer useful information that would enhance the performance of the police in the state, assuring that the identity of anyone who volunteered information to the police, would not be revealed.

The police boss also assured that the command was already taking measures to check the influx of arms and ammunition from the neighbouring countries sharing borders with the state.

He therefore assured the people of the state of adequate security of lives and property.

Okoye advised the groups that attended the meeting not to hesitate to volunteer useful information that would enhance the performance of the police in the state.
