“But this can only be achieved when the people have good perception about the police,” Bature said.

Sam Adegbuyi, the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, told the AIG that in view of the population of Oyo State, the command needed to create three more Area Commands in addition to the existing four commands.

He commended the AIG, the Oyo state government and the Police-Community Relation Committee for the successes recorded so far in the fight against crime.
