THE Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, has called for more collaboration among security operatives to tackle the spate of insecurity in the country.
Oba Ogunwusi made the call when he received Dr Akintayo Adaralewa, the newly deployed Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), in his palace in Ile-Ife on Friday.
He said that synergy among security operatives was crucial toward addressing insecurity in the country.
“In countries with stronger security records, collaboration among security operatives remains tight.
“Such collaboration will make security operatives tackle challenges of insecurity as indivisible entity; no single security agency can do the work alone.
“Osun state is relatively peaceful and as traditional institution, we will always support security agencies to make the state safer.
“I also want to commend NSCDC personnel that work in the palace, they are dutiful, in fact they are representing the corps very well,” Ooni said.
In his response, Adaralewa said that his visit was to seek guidance, pay homage, receive royal blessings and support of the Ooni for success in his assignment.
“I am here to ask you for support and blessings, like you gave to my predecessors that made him succeed,” he said.
Adaralewa assured Oba Ogunwusi that his administration would pay more attention to issues of farmers and herders clashes among others.
He said that the era of crisis between the herders and farmers would soon be a thing of the past.
He also solicited credible intelligence from members of the public, saying intelligence gathering was imperative for the success of security operatives. (NAN)
