The Corps Commander of the Ogun State Security Network Agency (Amotekun Corps), CP David Akinremi (Rtd.), has said effective collaboration and constant sharing of experiences among security agencies are fundamental to improving security as desired by the government and the people.
Mr. Aderemi revealed this at Oke-Ilewo, Abeokuta, while playing host to the new State Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Commandant Niyi Ajibola, noting that the mandate to secure lives and property rest majorly on the shoulders of the security agencies, as they were expected to play critical complementary roles.
He called for synergy, professionalism and patriotism between his security outfit and the Ogun State Command of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps in addressing insecurity in the State and the country at large.
“It is, therefore, expedient that intelligence sharing and consistent effective collaboration among the security agencies would assist the output of law enforcement agents to be in tune with global best practices”, he said.
The retired Police Commissioner applauded Governor Dapo Abiodun for the support to enhance the operations of security agencies towards their effectiveness while commending the officers and men of NSCDC for exhibiting professionalism and dexterity in areas of knowledge impartation, discipline, physical exercises, drill and parade in the course of training of Amotekun Corps recruits.
Earlier in his remark, Commandant Ajibola, who emphasised the need for a secured environment through unfettered synergy, intelligence gathering and sharing, said the Corps was prepared to support the civil authority and its counterparts in the area of security, enforcement of law and order in the State and beyond.
He said “we are here not only to reecho the covenant of security but also to assure that the Ogun Command of the NSCDC is prepared, more than ever. The familiarisation tour is to seek the collaboration of other security agencies in the State”.
