The Hunter’s Group of Nigeria, HGN, has vowed to work with the police, police public relations committee, PCRC, and other security outfits to fight crime headlong in various communities in Lagos.
HGN dropped this hint recently, even as insecurity of lives and properties in communities in the 774 local government areas in Nigeria seems to rattle government security agencies, no end.
Terrorism, banditry, robbery, kidnapping, murder, etc, are some of the crime against humanity that the retired Major-General Muhammed Buhari-led, is confronted with headlong, daily.
But, Ambassador Osatimehin, Commandant-General of HGN, said during the inauguration of the Lagos state chapter of the group that they are prepared to collaborate with similar private and government security agencies, as well as other stakeholders in the security sub- sector, to fight all forms of crime at communities in the state.
The inauguration, held recently at Ikeja Police College in Lagos, was attended by the police, officials of PCRC, DSS operatives and other critical security stakeholders in the country.
Chief Balogun Ogunniyi, Lagos state commander of HGN, in his submission, agreed with Osatimehin, and vowed that with the inauguration, the group will work with the police to crush criminalities in Lagos.
Speaking with our correspondent, Elder George Okoye, Lagos State Coordinator/Secretary, PCRC, Ikeja Police Division Command, expressed the delight and gratitude of PCRC, with the decision of the group to join forces with other security outfits to fight crime, headlong in communities in Lagos and the entire community.
According to Elder Okoye, with the collaborations, criminals have no hiding place anywhere as security agencies are working round the clock to ensure that Nigeria is safe, secure, peaceful and united for all of us.
