Police Says Ekiti has Lowest Crime Rate in Nigeria

The Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) in charge of Southwest Zone, Mr Foluso Adebanjo, has rated Ekiti as having the lowest crime rate in the country.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the DIG spoke in Ado Ekiti on Thursday during a working visit.

“The crime rate in Ekiti is very low, in fact, the lowest in the country. The police anywhere in the world can’t do it alone without the cooperation and consent of the people.

“You need to work with critical stakeholders to achieve a crime-free society

“The Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, is committed to the task of giving our men incentives.

“Before now, Inspectors used to spend over 14 years before becoming Superintendent of Police, but such has been corrected.

“Apart from promotion, we are working on the housing scheme for our men to be able to own a house after retirement.

“We are also improving on the medicals so that our men who sustained injuries in the course of performing their tasks can get the best treatment and many other incentives.

“Let us do this job conscientiously. Don’t be labelled corrupt officers, this is not good for the image of the force locally and globally.

“Do this job very well and you will not regret it because you are doing God’s job and your reward shall surely come,’’ he said.

Adebanjo added that the proposal for the recruitment of 30,000 policemen annually would take care of the shortfall in the personnel in some states, including Ekiti.

“As we speak now, 10,000 people are undergoing training and the proposal is that 30,000 will be trained yearly for the next 10 years.

So, we have a work plan and we must not allow a few criminals to destroy the beautiful name and respect Nigeria commands globally,’’ he said.

Earlier in his address of welcome, the state Commissioner  of  Police, Alhaji Abdulahi Chafe, said the command would continue to ensure  synergy with other sister agencies to make Ekiti  crime-free.
