Ogun Assembly Passes resolution on Production of Tracking equipment for Security Agencies

Concerned by the incessant cases of kidnapping, murder and ritual killings in some parts of Ogun State, the state House of Assembly has passed a resolution, calling on government, to as a matter of urgency, provide every necessary instrument and apparatus that would enhance security across the state.

Opening debate on the motion leading to the passage of the resolution, Hon. Adegoke Adeyanju explained that there was a need for government to bring together stakeholders in security management including, Security Trust Fund and the private sector in procuring, ‘Autel Drone Robotics Evo Max 4T’, meant for tracking criminals, so as to nip the menace in the bud.

Corroborating Adeyanju’s position, Hons. BabatundeTella and Adebisi Oyedele, equally raised the issue of insecurity under matter of urgent public importance, during the Plenary, presided over by Speaker Oludaisi Elemide, at the Assembly Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

They explained that the issues of kidnapping and ritual killings needed to be tackled headlong, decrying the recent gruesome murder of a jamb candidate, who was the Speaker’s niece, in her parents’ house at Olodo in Odeda Local Government Area of the State.

The lawmakers noted that such cases had become rampant in all parts of the state, hence the need for government to support security agencies by purchasing security gadgets to track criminals, just as solar cameras could also be installed in some parts of the state.

The debate later led to the motion for the resolution, moved by the Majority Leader Yusuf Sheriff, seconded by Hon. Lukmon Atobatele and supported by the Whole House through a unanimous voice vote.

Also, the Speaker led other lawmakers to rejoice with the Olu of Itoriland, Oba Abdul-Fatai Akorede Akamo, on the celebration of his 20th coronation anniversary, as reported by Hon. Yusuf Amosun, representing Ewekoro State Constituency.

The Speaker equally announced a Valedictory Plenary, in honour of the retiring Clerk/Head of Legislative Service, Mr. Adedeji Adeyemo on Tuesday, March 5, 2024.
