The Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo, Tuesday lamented the rising cases of ritual killings, kidnapping and cybercrime in the state. 

No less than three cases of killings for money rituals were recorded in different parts of the state last month. 

Oluomo, who spoke at the plenary, tasked movie producers to review the contents of their production to continually instil morals and peaceful co-existence.

He made the call while responding to the presentation of the lawmaker representing Sagamu 1 State Constituency, Abdul Bashir Oladunjoye, who presented the request of the theatre practitioners in the state to the assembly. 

Oluomo challenged members of the public to remain vigilant and be watchful of suspicious persons and activities within their neighbourhood, with a view to giving timely and accurate information on crimes to the law enforcement agents.

Meanwhile, the assembly hinted of the plan to organise a school security summit as part of its efforts towards evolving strategies for crime control and prevention within the schools in the state. 

Oluomo disclosed this during an advocacy visit by members of the National School Crime Prevention Corps led by its Commandant, Mr Ige Folayinka.
