The Ogun State Police Command has engaged the services of hunters to complement its efforts in fighting crimes in the state.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, stated this while addressing hunters at the Odeda Divisional Police Headquarters on Saturday.
He explained that the step was a collaborative measure aimed at effective policing in the state, adding that other relevant sectors would be incorporated into the security network of the state.
Mr. Adejobi said a serious police formation would not jettison or underrate the role of hunters in intelligence gathering and effective policing of its community.
He assured the readiness and commitment of the state Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali, to embrace all sectors and stakeholders in security business in the state towards having a safer environment for the people.
The police image-maker also assured the hunters of adequate support and protection in all areas provided they (hunters) remain law-abiding and operate within the ambit of the law.
