In the last three months, nothing less than 120 cultists have been arrested, while 100 of them are on remand through court orders.

“As it is now, the security of lives and properties has improved greatly in Remoland, and the governor has equally promised not to give breathing space to any criminal-minded persons or groups because we all know that without peace, there cannot be progress or development. We need the cooperation of all to further sustain this tempo and keep making our state safe for all.”

Responding, the Akarigbo, Oba Adewale Ajayi, commended Governor Abiodun for his proactiveness and efforts to ensure that every part of the state is safe for all dwell.

Oba Ajayi particularly commended Governor Abiodun for providing another Armoured Personnel Carrier to support crime fighting in the town, saying that this kind gesture has also helped to boost the security of the residents of the community.

The royal father pledged the support of all other traditional rulers and people of Remoland towards supporting the government to rid the state of all forms of criminality.

Also present at the event were Oba Adewale Osiberu, Elepe of Epe, Sagamu, Oba Oriyomi Soile, Radanuwa of Idado, Sagamu and Chief Adebayo Onafuwa, Bamofin of Remoland.
