CP Hails Osun Hunters Over Community Policing




Osun State Commissioner of police Mr Olafimihan Adeoye has attributed the prevailing peace in the state to the combined efforts of the police and several concerned groups including hunters.

Speaking at an Annual Anniversary and fundraising programme of the Association of Hunters in Osogbo, Osun state, Adeoye noted that effective policing is a collective responsibility of every citizen of the state.

The Commissioner who was represented at the function by Mr Suleiman Ishola, a Superintendent of Police and Officer in Charge of Anti-Kidnapping Squad of the Osun State police command noted that the police has a working and cordial relationship with hunters in the state and that has further strengthened the peace in the state.

“The hunters have assisted the police in several ways. We have already arrested and prosecuted many criminals while some are still been trailed, with the support of the hunters. Today, Osun is a no go area for hoodlums and terrorists and we hope to do more,” the CP added.

In his remarks, the coordinator of the hunters, Chief Nureni Hammed applauded the police for making Osun peaceful and less prone to crisis. He revealed that the group would continue to support the police and would not relent in its commitment to make Osun crisis free.

The hunters particularly singled out anti-kidnapping and anti-cultism efforts of the command and conferred a special award of recognition on SP Suleiman Ishola, the Officer in charge of the Anti-kidnapping squad of the command.

The hunters awarded Mr Afolabi Lukman, a Deputy Superintendent of Police and Second-in-Command of the Anti-cultism squad, “Solu dero of Osun State.” Mr Lukman was said to be at the forefront of the anti-cultism activities of the command.

The awardee, Chief Nureni observed, was specially recognised for his commitment and consistent efforts in ensuring that peace reign in the state.
