Cultists and criminals will no longer be able to operate freely in Kwara State.
This was announced at Ebunoluwarotimi Adelesi’s first press conference as police commissioner on Tuesday in Ilorin.

She promised that from now on, authorities will thoroughly investigate any cult-related reports and bring the perpetrators to justice.

The commissioner listed kidnapping, robbery, cultism and allied offenses, intra- and intercommunal confrontations, and car accidents as some of the dangers facing the state.

The CP, who has stated that crime prevention will be a top priority in her command, has provided the following explanation:

This stems from our firm belief that being a victim exacts a heavy toll on victims in more ways than can be counted.

Since crime can directly undermine a state’s legitimacy by eroding the trust connection between the people and the state, “our resolve to have crime prevention as the major policy thrust is further enhanced by the notion that crime can directly undermine the legitimacy of a state.”

The commissioner also said that the state’s communities are in an excellent position to contribute to the policing of their environment, thus existing efforts to cooperate and collaborate with them would be expanded.
