Kwara CP advocates committee of farmers, herdsmen, others

The Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Olusola Amore, has advocated the establishment of a committee to comprise farmers, Fulani herdsmen, community leaders, local government workers and policemen to address clashes between farmers and herdsmen and other security challenges.

Amore said the members of such a committee should meet regularly to strategise on how to deal with security challenges.

ROYAL NEWS gathered that the CP spoke on Friday during his tour of the northern part of Kwara State, which consists of Baruten and Kaiama local government areas, Kosubosu, Okuta and Ilesha Baruba; according to a statement by the command’s spokesperson, Mr. Ajayi Okasanmi.

The CP said the purpose of the tour was to assess the level of compliance by his men with all the directives passed to them regarding the policy thrust of the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris.

He added that the visit was to ensure that there was cooperation with all relevant stakeholders.

Amore described community policing as integral to his security strategy and emphasised the importance of mutual confidence, respect for the rule of law, alternative dispute resolution, accountability of service, and others.

He warned police personnel to avoid vices, extortion, indiscipline, and drunkenness.
