Executive Chairmen of Olorunsogo, Orelope and Irepo local government areas of Oyo state have held a joint security meeting with a view to ensuring safety of lives and property of residents of the areas.

The meeting which was in tandem with the vision of the governor of Oyo state, Engr Seyi Makinde to actualize a safe environment for Oyo residents, was also borne out of the determination of the three local government chairmen to protect their councils.

Our correspondent reports that some of the issues of concern discussed at the joint meeting include possible ways of curbing kidnapping, illegal Mining and banditry in the councils

Hon Qozeem Olayanju from Olorunsogo, Hon. Tunde Taoheed Olayiwola from Irepo and their Orelope counterpart, Hon. Ogundiran Jacob vowed not to leave any stone unturned to tackle insecurity and assisting security agencies to carry out their constitutional roles of protecting lives and property.

At the meeting held in Kisi, Irepo local government, the council chairmen unanimously agreed to prioritize security matters and redouble efforts against illegal Mining activities in their councils as directed by the governor during a recently held stakeholders’ meeting in Ibadan .

While commending governor Makinde for improving security architecture across the state, they urged the state government and security agencies to comb federal government forest reserves in the councils to fish out criminally minded people that have been using the forest as hideouts.

The chairmen also called for urgent need for the state to speed up actions on the creation of a proposed task force that would help address activities of illegal miners in local governments across the state and other areas.

They also emphasized the need for consistent fueling of vehicles of security agencies in the councils to allow them operate 24 hours patrol of flashpoint areas which they believe would also make their operation across the federal constituency smooth.

Other resolutions at the joint security meeting included the relocation of operation burst from novelty Poly, Kisi to reserve areas and clearing of bushes, at least 10 metres at both sides of the road along reserve areas.
