OGHA Calls For Measures To Checkmate Imminent Crime Upsurge In Ogun As Okada Is Banned In Lagos

Following the recent ban on commercial motorcycles and tricycles in some parts of Lagos State, the Ogun State House of Assembly(OGHA) has called for inter-agency partnership to tackle the likely upsurge of crimes as the operators migrate into towns and villages in Ogun State. 

The partnership, Ogun Assembly, added, should be championed by Governor Dapo Abiodun in collaboration with the security agencies to put in place proactive measures to checkmate impending crimes and criminalities the influx of the riders could engender.

The Speaker  Kunle Oluomo, who made the call while responding to the submissions of lawmakers including Adegoke Adeyanju, Sikirat Ajibola and Wahab Haruna under personal explanation at the Plenary on Tuesday.

Oluomo admonished residents of the State to be more security conscious in all their daily engagements.

He explained that putting measures in place such as means of identification for riders would help strengthen security operations, while ensuring sanity in the transport sector for socio-economic prosperity.

According to the Speaker, means of identification if introduced would also checkmate kidnapping in parts of the State.

He called on the Governor  to urgently intervene concerning the plights of people living in border communities who have been at the mercy of overzealous security agents.

He alleged that overzealous security agents had been inflicting untold hardship on business owners and residents.

He also  urged the leadership of the State Security Trust Fund to realign the allocation of vehicles and other  operational logistics to include all parts of the State to checkmate crimes and criminalities.

Earlier, the lawmakers reported the cases of kidnapping and killing of innocent people by bandits as well as the plights of their constituents in the border towns due to the Federal Government's directive on non-sales of petroleum products within 20km radius of the nation's border.

The Assemblymen noted that the directive had been preventing their people from  getting petroleum products to power their generating sets and other machines due to the overzealousness on the part of some security agents.
