The new Commissioner of Police in Kwara State, Mr Tuesday Assayomo, has warned kidnappers and cultists to relocate from the state, saying his regime is determined to make Kwara unbearable for them.
The new police boss gave the warning on Friday during his maiden press briefing with journalists in the state held at the command headquarters.

Mr Assayomo said he had been well briefed about the challenge of kidnapping, cybercrime and cultism in Kwara.
He said adequate arrangements had been put in place to ensure the security of lives and property in all nooks and cranny of the State.
The police boss said a strong team had been constituted to make wide investigations on the activities of cultists, cyber-criminals and kidnappers.
Assayomo assured that the command would collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure safety and security in the State.
“We want to assure the good people of Kwara State that they have no reason to fear, panic or be threatened, as the police under my control are aware and are sufficiently briefed on my zero tolerance for indiscipline and negligence on the part of any policeman found in any un-policeman-like conduct.
“I will consolidate the achievements recorded in the state before my arrival by working more closely with sister agencies to also make the state uncomfortable, especially for kidnappers, cultists, cybercriminals and all other forms of vices and anti-social behaviours.
“They should relocate for their own good.
“I solicit for the cooperation of the traditional institutions, religious organisations, civil society organisations, student bodies, professional bodies and members of the security community in the state in achieving this objective so that the good people of Kwara State can sleep at night with their two eyes closed.
“As a professional Police Officer, I want to inform members of the public that we are here to perform our constitutional duties in line with our professional callings and as such ready to do just that,” he added.
