The Ondo State Governor , Mr Rotimi Akeredolu , has expressed concern over what he described as the low level of policing in Ondo State , following the apparent absence of the men of the Nigeria Police Force on the streets of the state .
Governor Akeredolu advised the police authorities to take up their responsibilities as an institution and take charge of the public space for the good of all.
This was contained in a statement issued by the state Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Donald Ojogo , on Friday evening .
The statement read , “ The general observation across the state shows a very low level of policing which is risky to society. Of note , policing is key and can only thrive on a note of mutual trust and respect. We can all, only strive for a better society and brace up to take maximum advantage of lessons learnt from the unfortunate incidents of the last two weeks .
“ Saddening as the events appear , there is no doubt that a fresh orientation, perception of self – appraisal as well as an encouraging mood of sober reflection pervades the nation. ”
