General Officer Commanding, 2 Division of the Nigerian Army, Major General Anthony Omozoje, said security agencies would not relent in their efforts to maintain law and order to guarantee safety of lives and property.
The GOC spoke during a visit to the Commissioner of Police, Nwachukwu Enwonwu, at the Oyo State Police Command headquarters in Ibadan on Friday.
Warning miscreants and criminals, Omozoje said, “The Nigeria Police is an organ of the Federal Government for maintaining law and order. Likewise, the military takes care of security. We are partners on the same assignments.
“I’m here today to condole with the police command on the losses suffered during the recent crises in our society, and to let them know that we are together on this assignment. The military is out in support of the police and other security agencies of government are also out. This is also to sound a note of warning to all miscreants and criminals who think they can occupy the society. That will never happen. We will not surrender the society to criminals.”
Also, Enwonwu, said policemen had been encouraged not to succumb to threat and intimidation by criminals when they return to the streets to carry out their lawful duties.
