- Shina Olukolu – Oyo state Commissioner of Police

Speaking of recent donations towards state security, Dangote Cement PLC donated 35 new vehicles to Lagos State Security Trust Fund just two weeks ago. We are really happy to see both private organizations and state governments paying more attention to security at the state level.
And still, on security matters in Oyo state, we have to commend the efforts of the Oyo police command in apprehending the suspects who recently kidnapped the children of popular Islamic cleric Akewugbagold.
