In his short welcome speech, Olokode said his men are excited and grateful for the DIG to have chosen to visit Osun at this suspicious time at this time of “intending purported strike action by members of the rank and file of the Inspector of the Force and growing insecurity challenges Nationwide.

Olokode address reads in part,

“Our DIG sir, having visited Oyo command earlier, we in the Osun State Command are excited and grateful that you have chosen to visit us at this auspicious time when there is intending purported strike action by members of Rank and File and Inspector of the Force and growing insecurity challenges nationwide.

As you know Sir, Osun State is bounded by Kwara State in the North, Ekiti and Ondo States in the East, Oyo State in the West and Ogun State in the South.

The State, with the Command having 48 Divisional Headquarters, 8 Area Commands and 71 Police Posts occasionally record pockets of incidents such as Kidnapping, Thuggery/Cultism, Ritual killings, Internet fraud, Religious crisis, and Communal/Chieftaincy disputes, which we have always risen up to curtail promptly; notwithstanding, Osun State remains one of the most peaceful, not only in the South West but by extension, in the whole country, as at today; due to the outstanding security mechanisms put in place by the Command, in collaboration with Sister Agencies and Civilian JTF such as; Vigilante, Hunters, Agbekoya, Omo-Ode Agbekoya, OPC etc.

However Sir, the Command is faced with manpower and logistic challenges, dilapidated living accommodation (Barracks) and lack of modern policing gadgets etc.

This directly or indirectly has had its toll on service delivery. It is therefore the Command’s prayer and belief that the DIG’s visit at this crucial period would afford him the honour to help the Command in looking into the enumerated challenges, to get the best performances from my disciplined, loyal and duty-conscious officers and men of the Command.

In a nut-shell, I want to once again welcome the Deputy Inspector-General of Police and his entourage to Osun State Police Command today and to inform the DIG that, the officers and men of the Command have been lectured/ sensitized against embarking on purported strike action by the junior cadre of the Force and the IGP’s welfare package for the officers and men of the Force. We also pledge our unalloyed support to ensure your visit is a huge success.

Once again, on behalf of officers and men of the Command, I I wish you and your entourage a happy visit and journey mercy.”
