Speaking on the level of preparedness of his group, he said, the VGN in Osun is fully prepared to work with other security outfits in ensuring peaceful atmosphere devoid of any criminal acts in the region.
He however urged the people of the region especially Osun State indigenes to fully support the government in promoting peaceful environment in the state by reporting any criminal activities noticed around them to the appropriate authority.
