The Ekiti State Police Commissioner, Mr Babatunde Mobayo recently revealed this via a statement.
According to him, the Swift Response Squad (SRS) unit of the police has been decentralised to boost patrols across the 16 Local government areas of the state, and that will definitely improve security.
He added that the strategies put in place have begun to yield results due to proactive actions taken by Ekiti State Police formation.
His words, “We knew that kidnapping was a major challenge to our Command in the year 2020, and if you observe very well, you would realise that the cases are reducing even before Christmas and new year festivities.
“The last issue we experienced in December 31 was a self- kidnap and the person behind this and his syndicates who were perpetrators of this to extort a sum of N250,000 from a woman had been arrested.
“Due to a change of operational strategies, the operation SRS is now operating in all the local governments and our patrol teams are all over the roads monitoring situations.
“We are determined to fight kidnapping in Ekiti and we are ready to work with Vigillante groups, Amotekun corps, Agbekoya, and local hunters to achieve this task.”
“The police as a superintending body is monitoring all other paramilitary bodies in Ekiti. To the best of our knowledge, the Ekiti Amotekun corps has been professional in their duties.
“And they are cooperating with us to fight and reduce crime in Ekiti.”
