Chairman, Osun PCRC Advocates Support for Police in Combating Crimes, PCRC, Comrade Amitolu Shittu has implored members of the public to extend their sincere supports and cooperation towards enhancing the security in the state.

The PCRC Chairman stated this during a Stakeholders advocacy tour to Ilesa Area Command Headquarters of Nigeria Police Force.

Comrade Amitolu said the issue of security in the country has gotten to a stage where collective efforts are required to combat the rate of all forms of criminality in the state.

The Human Rights Activist maintained that the State PCRC was ready to give needed support and cooperation to the State Police Command by serving as helping hands in stemming the tide of insecurity and other forms of illegality.

Comrade Amitolu reassured to double the efforts of the organization in working side-by-side with the police so as to protect the society and enhance the spate of security.

Speaking on the roles of PCRC, Comrade Amitolu said the primary duty of the organization was to partner with the police by providing useful information that will help them combating crimes in the society and as well strengthen the security in the state.

He therefore called on Nigerians to join hands in keeping the society free from any act capable of undermining the existing peace, integrity of police or tarnishing their competence in fighting against anti-human behaviours in the state.

Comrade Amitolu who described police as closest man’s friends said, the PCRC was institutionalized into the limelight so as to serve as an intermediary between the people and the society especially in the area of security tips.

He regarded community policing as the better way of combating illegality, criminality and lawlessness at the grassroots, saying the state chapter of PCRC would not rest on its oars to ensure that the society sleeps with two eyes closed.

Comrade Amitolu therefore admonished  the police to continuously adhere to the ethics and tenets of their profession so as entrench the confidence reposed in them by the people in the society.

He stressed further,”we believe that the issue of security needs prompt information and on our side, we are ever ready to champion this by ensuring that we work hands-in-hands with police to sanitize our society and ensure safety for all.

“In our quest to achieve this lofty task, we have intensified strategic plans to spread the gospel of security consciousness in the nooks and crannies of our state by reaching out to the people at the grassroots on the need to be more security conscious and serve as supportive and collaborative agents to aid the police for the betterment of all.

Earlier in his remarks, the Area Commander, Ilesa Area Command of Nigeria Police Force, ACP, Akin Faderin commended the leadership and members of the State PCRC for their unflinching support and collaboration towards enhancing adequate security services in the state.

ACP Faderin who described PCRC as non-uniformed police said the roles being played by the members of the organization can never be undermined  as they have really assisted the command in its fight against crimes and other related offences.

ACP Faderin also applauded the members of the state PCRC for strengthen the existing peace in the state, saying their impact towards peaceful cohabitation between and among the people in the state has reduced the burden of police.

He requested for further assistance from the state PCRC at ensuring that the state is placed at the forefront of crime free society in Nigeria.

ACP Faderin also implored the citizens to be more security conscious and report anything capable of threatening the proliferated peace being enjoyed in the state.

“PCRC in Osun has proven its weights as a formidable instrument and reliable helping hand towards general protection of lives and property.

“The impacts of the State PCRC has been greatly felt in and out of this state and this selfless service to humanity would be continuously commended by Nigeria Police.

“On our part, we shall continue to render our constitutional duties diligently and ensure that our state is totally free from all forms of criminality.

“We shall also continue to portray ourselves as friends of the people and societies in such a way that everyone would be confident and freed to give any tangible security information that will aid our activities.

“In view of this, I want our people to be more security conscious and report any strange exposition observed to the police for prompt security intervention”, he said.

Meanwhile, the train of the advocacy tour of the state PCRC paid a courtesy call to the Palace of Owa Adimula of Ijesaland, Oba Gabriel Adekunle Aromolaran and International Breweries PlC, Ilesa respectively.
