Edo residents commend Obaseki’s community security initiative



Residents of Edo State and those in the Diaspora have commended Governor Godwin Obaseki for improving the state’s security architecture and responding to security challenges through the state’s Community Vigilante Network.

Community, religious and traditional leaders, among others commended Obaseki for initiating the security network, which had confronted criminals, kidnappers and rescued victims of abduction across the state, especially in the Ahor axis of Aduwawa Bypass on the Benin-Auchi expressway.

Following the gains recorded in the provision of security in the state, a Benin City-based legal practitioner, Olayiwola Afolabi, applauded the governor for ensuring peace and security, as well as the protection of life and property of citizens.
In a letter of commendation to the governor, Afolabi said: “As a result of Obaseki’s actions, the security agencies were able to quickly rise to the occasion and this led to the rescue of over 21 persons who were kidnapped at Ahor Community in Uhunmwonde Council of the state.”
“It is no longer news that insecurity has gripped the entire country, leading to loss of life and property across the nation and insecurity has begun to manifest in some parts of the state.
“However, the governor, being a man of insight and action, immediately swung into action, mobilising the various security agencies to forestall breakdown of law and order.
“We must at this point appreciate Obaseki for setting up the Edo State Vigilante Group to complement the Edo State Command of the Nigeria Police.”
Afolabi also commended the Commissioner of Police (CP), Philip Aliyu Ogbadu and the Officer in Charge of anti-kidnapping for the swift and decisive actions, which led to the rescue of the kidnapped persons.
“It is in light of the above that I, as a resident of the state, deemed it imperative to write to Governor Obaseki and appreciate his efforts in ensuring the security of life and property of citizens in and around the state,” the letter reads.
