66

A traditional ruler in Osun State, the Olowu of Owu-Kuta in Aiyedire local government area of Osun State, Oba (Dr) Hammed Adekunle Makama Oyelude, Tegbosun III, on Friday asked the federal government to properly equip the Nigeria Police to put it in proper position as a way of fighting insecurity in the country.

Oba Oyelude made this known in his palace while fielding questions from the “News Point Programme” organised by the Osun NUJ Correspondents’ Chapel.

The Olowu noted that the people behind the insecurity of the country are operating with very sophisticated weapons hence, the need for the police to be properly armed with equally or more superior weapons to enable them to squarely face the undesirable elements.

The traditional ruler also advocated improved welfare packages for officers and men of the Nigerian Police, saying, “I call on the government to improve the welfare of all security agencies, equip them well so they can be well motivated to carry out their duties”.

Oba Oyelude used the medium to commends the entire security forces of the country for their untiring efforts in the fight against insecurity and therefore urges Nigerians to continue to pray for the police and other security agencies so that Nigeria can overcome the security challenges that have bedevilled the nation.

The Olowu of Owu-Kuta further admonished the entire Yoruba son’s and daughters going for foreign religions not to abandoned the culture and traditions of their forefathers.

Oba Oyelude however admonished the people to always be vigilant, watch and pray for the security and unity of the country.
