Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has said that bandits and kidnappers arrested must be prosecuted as evidence of justice delivery in the country.
Speaking in Ikenne, Ogun State, where he participated in the ongoing APC membership and revalidation exercise on Tuesday, he also stressed the importance of establishing the State Police structure and stronger collaboration between the security agencies and Justice ministries, which he said would help to improve security nationwide.
He said: “We must speed up and strengthen the community policing structures, states must continually train, educate and formalise their local security structures so that they complement the Federal law enforcement agencies. Policing must be a collective effort, from the Local Government to the State Government, and all the way up to the federal government.
“We must ensure the prosecution of all those who have been arrested for kidnapping, banditry. There must be evidence that justice is being done. This is achievable by stronger collaboration between the police, States Ministries of Justice and the Federal Ministry of Justice.“We are in government at one of the most challenging times in history. The pandemic has not helped matters, and we also have had security challenges that have stretched our law enforcement capacities all over the country. But we remain the best party to solve these problems.” (Tribune)
