Police should prosecute Landlords/Landladies who are opposed to security – Ebie
A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC Ika South Local Government, Comrade Clement Ebie has reiterated his support for the effective security of lives and properties in Agbor and its environs. Comrade Ebie who is the youth leader of APC in Ika South, in an interview said without collective efforts it will be very difficult to achieve effective security.
His words, “Effective security is very important in any given society. A secured society is a progressive society. We cannot do without security; hence, it is mandatory for all Landlords/Landladies irrespective of your status to be part of any security network in your area. If there is a good synergy between vigilante members and Landlords/Landladies better results will be achieved. For us to achieve the plan of paying monthly stipends to our vigilante members, we (Landlords/ Landladies) must play effective roles in areas where we live. Any Landlord or Landlady who is not part of the security network in his or her area should be prosecuted by the police. Whoever is not part of the efforts to secure our community should be sanctioned.”
Speaking further, Comrade Ebie noted that Police Community Relations Committee, PCRC should be given the mandate to supervise the Landlords/Landladies Associations in the payment scheme to vigilante members. Credible community leaders like Evang. Paul Ebede should be part of the supervision exercise.”
He commended the efforts of the police and other security agencies in Agbor, including vigilante members, urging them to keep on with the work they are doing. He promised to continue to partner with any meaningful plan aimed at making Agbor a safe haven for all residents irrespective of class.
