The Coordinator of the Osun State Police Command Harmonised Vigilante Group, Alhaji Ridwan Hussein-Yah’Salam, on Saturday, urged Nigerians to work together with security agencies to combat criminal activities.
Alhaji Hussein Yah Salam made the call while decorating 25 officers of his group members who were promoted.
The security expert, who described the battle against crime as something that must be done collectively, noted that the task should not be left to government or security personnel alone.
While congratulating the newly promoted officers, Yah’Salam charged them to consider their elevation as a call to greater tasks, as they would be saddled with higher responsibilities.
He reminded them of the need to be more dutiful, disciplined, courageous and patriotic.
His words: “I want to use this medium to implore you to continue to cooperate and support the group while I promise to continue to do my best in conjunction with relevant government organisations to promote the overall working conditions of the entire officers.”
Speaking on the security of life and property, Yah’Salam assured that his group would continue to collaborate with Osun State Police Command in the fight against hoodlums.
The security expert explained that although the state was safe, cool and calm, but “ we must be security conscious at all times .”
Yah’Salam, who commended the state governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, for his efforts in ensuring the safety of life and property across the state, advised the people not to relent in maintaining high level vigilance and cooperation with security agencies.
