Crime: Ex- Edo police commissioner makes case for vigilante

The retired Edo State Police Commissioner, Philip Aliyu Ogbadu, has stressed the need for proper management of the vigilante group in the state to fight crime.

 Ogbadu made the call in Benin during his formal pulling-out parade after 35 years in service.

 “We came in at a difficult time, shortly after the #EndSARS protests. The governor and his team worked tirelessly with us for three months and the state command was very supportive. We fought security challenges to a standstill, especially kidnapping. Edo people were good and very supportive.”

He said if the vigilante was properly managed in the state, it would address crime and criminalities, adding that they were also part of his success.

 “I want to thank God Almighty, the state government, the Benin monarch, traditional rulers and religious leaders for the opportunity to serve in Edo State. It is a privilege of every serving officer to retire successfully,” Ogbadu said.
