Secretary, Ilesa East Local Government Council, Honourable Lanre Balogun, has called on security officials in Ilesa to emulate the gallantry of the security operatives at Ikirun, who, last week, successfully arrested some robbers who attacked banks in the area. Balogun stated that the brave security operatives successfully “countered the armed robbers and disallowed them from perpetrating evil in the area.”
Balogun stated this while speaking against the backdrop of recent armed robbery attack in Ikirun, when bandits attacked two major banks in Ikirun, Osun State.
The council boss also commended the gallantry of the police, most especially, the DPO of Iragbiji, who strategically manned a security bullet proof tank to counter the armed robbers during the attack at Ikirun, which aided the arrest of four of the bandits and disallowed them from carting away the sum of N7.5milion looted from the banks.
While calling on the leadership of the police in the country to recognise the efforts of the DPO, he also commended Osun State governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola, for providing adequate security outfits for the people in Osun State and maintained that, he would also commence a campaign to “sensitise people on the need for adequate security in their respective homes, offices and market places within Ilesa East Local Government Area.”
