The leadership of the Yoruba Socio-cultural group, Afenifere wants Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu to continue to beef up security across Ondo State.
Bashorun Sehinde Arogbofa gave the advice when he led Ondo State chapter of the group on a courtesy visit to the governor in Akure.
Bashorun Arogbofa appreciated Governor Akeredolu for the introduction of Amotekun security outfit arguing that government could hardly succeed without the security of lives and property of the citizens.
He described Amotekun as the forerunner of the state police and encouraged Governor Akeredolu to keep the flag flying
In a bid to end frequent clashes between Herders and farmers, the Afenifere leader called for the domestication of cattle ranching as obtainable in Akunnu and Auga settlements in the state
Responding, Governor Akeredolu who appreciated the roles played by the group in the creation of Ondo State described security of citizens as number one responsibility of every government.
He however suggested modern equipment to enhance Amotekun operation as well as a multi-level policing to tackle upsurge of criminality in recent times
The governor who also believed in restructuring promised to engage more hands in security saying the region would continue to remain as Nigeria while pressing on its inalienable rights.
