Adelabu-led Oyo Trust Fund Hands Over 10 Patrol Vans To Security Agencies




The Oyo State Security Trust Fund (OYSSTF) has donated 10 new patrol vans, bulletproof jackets and some fire fighting equipment to the state’s Joint Security Task Force.

The Chairman of OYSSTF, Chief Bayo Adelabu, handed over the equipment to some agencies on Tuesday in Ibadan.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the patrol vans and bulletproof jackets were received by Brig.-Gen. Oluyinka Soyele, the Commander of Operation ‘Burst, the state’s joint security outfit.

NAN also reports that the fire fighting kits, which included helmets, boots and hose, were received by the Director of Fire Services in the state, Mr Moshood Adewuyi.

Adelabu explained that the new patrol vans were purchased as part of efforts to further strengthen the security network in the state as well as aiding fast response to crime.

He said that the Ajimobi-led administration had shown much commitment to security of lives and property, adding that this was evident in the peaceful atmosphere witnessed in the last eight years.

“The primary responsibility of any government is to protect the lives of its citizenry and their property. Without these, there can’t be any meaningful development.

“If there is anything the Ajimobi administration is recognised for, it is security of lives and property.

” This administration has performed better than any government in the state on security,’’ he said.

Adelabu, however, implored the incoming administration to sustain and surpass the present administration’s achievement on security

He urged the agencies to ensure maintenance of the patrol vans and usage for the purpose they were meant for.

Mr Segun Abolarinwa, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Security, said that the patrol vans were equipped with modern communication gadgets to ensure quick response to crime.

“Security is a continuum. The Ajimobi-led administration has ensured adequate security of lives and property in the last eight years.

“This administration is winding up and we must ensure that we are not handing over a bad security situation to the incoming administration,’’ he said.

The event was attended by Mr Femi Oyedipe, OYSSTF Executive Secretary,  and  Oba Abiodun Kola-Daisi.
