Ekiti State Deputy Governor Prof Modupe Adelabu Nigerians is rallying community support for the police. She urged Nigerians to give logistic supports to stations situated in their neighbourhoods.

The deputy governor spoke in her office when members of the Police Community Relations Committee (PCRC) in Zone 8 paid her a courtesy call in Ado-Ekiti, the state capital on Tuesday. Zone 8, which has its headquarters in Lokoja,  is made up of Kogi, Kwara and Ekiti states.

They were led by the Zonal Chairman Deacon Taiye Jonipinsaiye and Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) in charge of the Zone, Christopher T. Dega, who was represented by Mr Adeyemi Gbola, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP).

The deputy governor said the PCRC is not only important but critical to security and the maintenance of peace in the society.

Her words: “The PCRC is a community police because its membership is drawn from the community. The members have a duty to support the police stations established in their domains.

“Other members of the society must also contribute morally and financially through mobilization of support for the police because government alone cannot do everything.”

Although she told her guests that Ekiti remained one of the most peaceful states in the country, the deputy governor, however assured of the state government’s readiness to sustain its support for the police.

Speaking earlier, the PCRC chair noted the importance of the people’s cooperation with security agencies, especially the police.

He said: “It is also worthy of note that men of the underworld lives within the community and without the public working hand-in-hand with the police, police cannot actualize their air aim among apprehension and prosecution of crime offenders.”

According to him, the PCRC in Zone 8 was on an on-the-sport assessment of the security challenges to the state, even as he solicited for the support of the Dr Kayode Fayemi administration in kitting the police in the state.
