By Jimoh Ahmed, Ikare-Akoko


The people of Akunu Ikakumo, Auga Akoko and adjoining towns have lauded the decision of the House of Representatives in passing a motion calling on the Inspector General of Police to create a separate Police Division for the area.

The communities in  Isowopo area of Akoko Northeast are known to be flashpoints for kidnapping, armed robbery and other heinous crimes.

According to the people, creating  a  separate Police Division for the area was a return to the late fifties when the area had one.

They posited that  this   development would greatly reduce insecurity in the area.

The duo of the Regent of Akunu,  Princess  Tolani Orogun and  Alauga of Auga Akoko,  Oba Samuel  Agunloye, noted that the  present House of Representatives  will remain indelible in the annal   history of the region for remembering them when all hopes to solve the problem created by insecurity and criminality seemed insurmountable.

They called on Ondo State Commissioner of Police to kindly assist them in fast-tracking the decision.

They disclosed that many indigenes of the area have refused to come home while markets in the zone were not patronised due  to security challenge in the area.
