“Since my assumption of office, we have arrested a lot of criminals terrorising the people and have prosecuted many of them,” he said.
“Today, we have gone to Kogi to arrest a notorious kidnapper, Danger, and he is now in our custody.”
He also revealed his security strategy, which involves ensuring that all entry and exit routes in Ekiti are well policed, directing more reinforcement and adequate deployment to flashpoints.
He called on members of the public to report any officer who violates the rules of engagement to the police and volunteer information to help in checking criminal elements in society.
Ekiti State has been experiencing incidents of kidnapping in recent times.
The state governor, Biodun Oyebanji, had expressed concerns over the development in April and called on local governments and development councils in the state to collaborate with the state government and security agencies to fight the menace.
