The Ekiti State Police Command has claimed that the cases of crimes often recorded in the state have reduced to the barest minimum.
Police public Relations Officer of the Command, Caleb Ikechukwu stated this during a telephone chat with Roundoffnews reporter over the weekend.
Ikechukwu explained that the state almost recorded zero crime in the last two weeks if not for the Herdsman who killed his betrothed wife and the cleric who faked his own kidnap.
However Ikechukwu believed that the arrest of the two suspects was also a plus for the command particularly the cleric who faked his own abduction.
According to him, the feat was due to the vigorous patrol and surveillance of the state by men of the command which he promised would be intensified.
Ikechukwu explained that the command was more prepare than ever to ensure a crime free state by nipping in the bud the activities of criminals
The PPRO however appealed to members of the public to partner the police by assisting it with constant information on the activities of criminals around them.
He gave an assurance that every information supplied would be treated with utmost confidentiality while the identity of the source would be protected .
