Ekiti State government has reassured the people of the state that there would be adequate protection of lives and property during the festive period in the state.
Governor Biodun Oyebanji, who was represented by his Security Adviser, Brig Gen Ebenezar Ogundana, gave the assurance at the launch of the “Ember Month Patrol” in Ekiti State on Wednesday.
The governor warned all criminally minded people to stay clear of the state.
Ogundana said: “Government would not fold its arms and allow these miscreants to be operating in Ekiti. We have to bring out the security agencies to go round the town and identify some criminal hideouts to flush out the criminals in the state.
“We need the support of everybody because security is the responsibility of everybody.
“When you see something, you say something, don’t see something and decide to keep quiet.”
