The Oyo State Executive Council (EXCO) met this afternoon and approved the sum of N178.7M for the procurement of digital communication equipment for the police and other security agencies in the state.
Still on security, we were briefed that the 100 security patrol vehicles approved by the EXCO and purchased earlier have been branded and equipped, and will be distributed to the relevant security agencies next week.
We also received an update on the illegally detained persons rescued from the correction centre at Olore Central Mosque, Ojoo. Following the period of rehabilitation, some of them have been released to their families whilst others were taken to the state rehabilitation centres. A few of the rescued persons are still receiving treatment in hospital.
