Ekiti Partners Army To Tackle Crimes
Ekiti State Governor, Mr Ayo Fayose, has expressed the readiness of the state government to partner with the Nigerian Army to tackle crime and insecurity in the state.
The governor stated this while playing host to the General Officer Commanding, 2 Division of the Nigerian Army, Maj.-Gen. Laz Chima Ilo, in his office in Ado-Ekiti.
In a statement in Ado-Ekiti yesterday by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, the governor also lauded the military for their discipline and professionalism.
He opined that the virtues by the Nigerian military were second to none.
Fayose noted that withdrawing soldiers from some major roads would have been a disaster, adding that the efforts of soldiers at checking crimes could not be relegated to the background.
The governor called for the support of the army to nip kidnapping in the bud, saying a law, which would stipulate life sentence for kidnappers would soon be enacted in the state.
