In another development, the Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Lawan Ado, said it was imperative for the police and the state vigilance groups to cooperate to enhance security.
He spoke during a meeting with the ‘Eminent Persons Forum,’ in Ilorin, where he called on traditional rulers, transport unions and other stakeholders to collaborate with the police in the fight against crime.
He added that credible information and collaboration of members of the public would enhance the performances of the police.
He said, “We need to support the police.
“I want you to disabuse your mind from bad perception about the police. The police are not bad. In every society and agencies, there are bad and good people. Policemen are not bad people, even though there are bad eggs among us.”
