Speaking during one of the Ember-months inter-agency patrols, Adeleye advised criminal-minded persons to leave the state as there will be no hiding place for them.

The security expert urged residents to assist security agents in ridding the state of criminals.

Adeleye said:, “One of the ways you can help us achieve a crime-free society is by reporting strange or suspicious movements in your area to us through our distress line and we can assure you of swift responses.

“If you see something, you say something. Our distress line remains 08079999989 and we can assure you that we’ve compressed our response to distress.


“To the criminals, Ondo State is not a place to stay for them. Kidnappers, armed robbers, thieves and other elements that serve as threats to the peace and security of the people of the state should find their way out of the State because there will be no hiding place.”

Adeleye said security agencies are always united in fighting criminality, and they are all out to ensure residents enjoy the yuletide and new year holidays without fear.

“We are joining hands in the spirit of synergy to ensure that lives and property in Ondo State are safe from any form of criminality. That is the essence of the parade and training session of today.

“The Ember months patrols have been very successful and fruitful. Many criminals have been shown the way to correctional centers while the majority of them have run away from the state.

“Now that the December holidays are coming, they are re-strategizing and I can assure them that we will smoke them out.”

Adeleye urged all security agencies to continue to remain united in fighting criminality, saying it’s only in unity that the war against insecurity can be won.

At the patrol were officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), the Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC), officers from the Correctional centers, Amotekun Corps and other security agencies.
