Oyo Has What It Takes To Curtail Crime Despite Rising Influx Of Businesses — Commissioner


The Oyo State government has affirmed that it has what it takes to curtail criminal activities that might be on the upward trend as a result of influx of businesses into the State.

In his speech during the the first year anniversary of Baby Blue Angels Foundation on Wednesday, the State Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr. Wasiu Olatubosun said the State government has invested heavily in security and assured those apprehensive about the relocation of businesses from neighbouring States that the government is capable of securing the businesses, the people and their properties.

He said, “So many moribund State investments are now alive, recruiting people and engaging in resources sourcing and manufacturing, many companies have left Lagos and Ogun State to invest in Oyo State because of the relative peace we are enjoying.

“The State government has invested in security through the State’s security outfit codenamed’Operation Burst’ and recently established the State own Amotekun Corps which will serve as our own community police for now, so for those apprehensive about the relocation of businesses from our neighbouring States to Oyo State, I assure them that we are capable of securing the businesses, the people and their properties.”
