The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu, has appealed to the traditional medicine practitioners in the state to help the police to tackle human parts dealers and other shady characters by exposing them whenever they consult them for “traditional assistance.”
He said this on Thursday in the Sango-Ota area of the state while declaring open a one-day workshop on ‘Effective Policing: Role of Traditional Medicine Practitioners.’
The workshop was organised by the Police Community Relations Committee, Ogun State branch, for the alternative medicine practitioners in the state.
Iliyasu said community policing was vital to nipping crime and criminality in the bud, adding that such could only be achieved by partnering stakeholders like the PCRC at the grass roots.
He advised members of the association to ensure they formally registered with all the regulatory bodies at all levels.
He said, “We have concern for security of lives and property. For us to carry out effective policing, we need first hand information.
“There are some people who believe that the only way they can survive is through criminal activities; we will hunt them down. We have a new police which is ready to protect the rights of the people.
“We are here to make Ogun State stable, sanitise the society and say no to brutality. Make sure your hands are clean; regularise and formalise what you are doing.” SHARE YOUR STORY WITH US VIA EMAIL: INFO@247NIGERIANEWSUPDATE.CO RECEIVE NEWS VIA OUR WHATSAPP, KINDLY TEXT +234 701 056 0394 TO ADD YOU CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON OUR YOUTUBE CHANNEL FOR NEWS UPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN US ON TWITTER FOR INSTANT NEWS UPDATE: @247NGNEWSUPDATE CLICK HERE TO JOIN MILLIONS AROUND THE GLOBE TO READ NEWS ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE FOR INSTANT UPDATES ON INSTAGRAM CLICK HERE RECEIVE INSTANT NEWS UPDATE VIA OUR BBM BROADCAST: D3EDEFDF PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW:>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
