BENIN, September 26, 2017 – Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has disclosed plans to meet with President Muhammadu Buhari to strengthen the state’s security apparatus so as to tackle the lingering security challenges in the heart beat of the nation.

Obaseki stated this while responding to questions on the killing of three police officers and the kidnap of the Chief Executive Officer of Ogba Zoological Garden and Nature Park, Mr. Andy Ehanire in Benin City on Sunday.

He said the incident was unfortunate and assured that a revamp of the security structure in the state especially the strengthening of the State Police Command will curb crime and improve security in the state.

“As we move towards the end of the year, crimes of this nature tend to raise their ugly heads, but we have taken the necessary steps to ensure the state is safe and secure for everyone and we have enough information on what has happened,” he added.

The governor, who also paid an unscheduled visit to the Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) in Benin City for an on-the-stop assessment of the facilities at the institution, decried the state of facilities at the institute.

Obaseki who was taken round the institute by the Acting Rector, Victor Ajagun, told journalists after the inspection that based on the facilities on the ground, the institute did not deserve to be called a school.

 “I am here to see things for myself and this does not deserve to be called a school. I have seen the facilities and I am heartbroken. We are going to take a decision on what to do with the institute,” he said.
