Easter: Police in Ogun call for vigilance

 The police in Ogun on Tuesday advised  residents to be vigilant  during the Easter celebration  in order to check crime.

The Police Public Relations Officer  in  Ogun, Mr Bimbola Oyeyemi,  gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ota.

“ Security in the state is everybody’s  business because the police cannot be everywhere all the time,’’ he said.

Oyeyemi also implored residents  to report any strange movement or gathering that may constitute a security challenge.

He disclosed that the  police would deploy more  personnel across the state during the festive period.

“ The police do not normally wait for a festive period before putting security arrangement in place because crime is being committed every day,  ”he added.
Oyeyemi described Ogun as a  peculiar  state sharing  a border  with Benin Republic  with the attendant security challenges.
