"Enough is Enough" - Gov. Dapo Abiodun Vows To Deal With Criminals In Ogun State



Following the arrest of 150 suspects by the Ogun State Police Command in connection with the series of harassment, robberies, burglaries and cult clashes occurring within the Agbado Ijaiye, Sango, Ijoko and Ifo axis of the State, Governor Dapo Abiodun has promised to deal ruthlessly with criminals.

In a statement released on Sunday, April 12, the governor said:

“It has become expedient that we do not spare the rod and spoil the child. Anybody, no matter whose child he or she is, if found guilty of armed robbery, would be visited with the full weight of the law, including capital punishment”.

“I will not hesitate to confirm sentences, even of capital punishment, if that will deter these social misfits. Ogun has zero- tolerance for criminals and we will deal with the with venomous measures. Enough is enough."

Governor Abiodun applauded the State Police Command for its swiftness and prompt adherence to directive of the State Government to flush out those turning the sit-at-home order to a criminal enterprise.

The governor further urged the police to intensify efforts at curbing the activities of criminals in the state.

He said the State would avail all other security outfits, including the Department of State Security Service and the armed forces, with necessary material and logistic support to end the reign of terror unleashed by armed robbers on the State.

The Governor enjoined all law-abiding citizens and residents to remain calm and continue to comply with the stay-at-home directive, as the situation is now fully under control.
