Edo State Governor Godwin Obaseki says he cannot secure the state alone, so, he needs the support and cooperation of the people of the state.

The governor said this in Benin yesterday while receiving a new Commissioner of Police in the state, Hakeem Odumosun.

Obaseki said: “We can’t secure the state alone without the support and cooperation of Edo people. The security information management system which Kokumo (the former CP) has helped the state to set up is vital. All the information in the database will help in understanding the incidence of criminality in the state as well as assist in policing the state.”

He urged the new CP to run a corruption-free command and ensure that the people of the state trust the command.

He specifically charged the new CP to use the new state security architecture to fight crime to the barest minimum.

The governor said a permanent emergency response centre, where activities of the new security architecture would be coordinated, would be ready before the end of the first quarter of 2019.

He said: “We are building an emergency response centre to be ready in the quarter of this year. For now, we will set up a temporary centre to coordinate all the activities of the operatives under the new security architecture recently launched in the state.”
