Ondo gets security monitoring app
Ondo State Governor, Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has said millions of cellphones would be converted into state security cameras, just as the state released a security monitoring app to aid citizens in reporting bad or poor services in government, institutions, or facilities
He stated this while launching a security surveillance app for the state at the passing out parade of Course 3 and 4 Amotekun Corps held at the Gani Fawehinmi Freedom Arcade, Akure.
Akeredolu said this would be a tech-based neighbourhood watchman/whistleblower platform where citizens could report a crime in real-time to alert all security agencies for immediate action.
He said Ondo State security network agency, Amotekun Corps, would be armed in accordance with the law since, in the absence of such, the training would be insufficient and the lives of great patriots would be in danger.
He explained that this ground-breaking platform would make sure Ondo State citizens and natives become their brothers’ guardians.
The governor emphasised that his administration will continue to support the operational capability of all security agencies in the state in terms of both equipment and the welfare of their staff. He also said the passing out ceremony serves as a reminder of the need to develop a plan of action and deal with the current security situation, which he claimed has been allowed to snowball into an existential crisis throughout Nigeria.
Akeredolu said, the Western Nigeria Security Network, Amotekun Corps,” as a response, is not just the first line of defense, but the ultimate bulwark in the protection of a way of life and civilization.
“On our part, we will continue to support the operational capacity of all security agencies in the state both in terms of equipment and the welfare of their personnel.”
“The ONDO EYE (Oju Ondo), is coming in at an important time when our state security infrastructure needs all the support and cooperation it can get from residents and indigenes of the state as millions of phones will not serve as surveillance cameras in the state. The platform will be launched and go live at the end of the month. For more information, check out the website at www.ondoeyes.ng.
