Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has once again commended the Nigerian Armed Forces for their efforts in securing lives and properties of Nigerians, especially in the North East.

The governor gave the commendation while hosting the General Officer Commanding 81 Division Nigerian Army, Major General Ebenezer Babatunde Oyefolu in his Oke-Mosan office.

Amosun noted that the Nigerian Army, with the support of other security operatives, did well in stemming the onslaught of the Boko Haram terrorists.

The governor also expressed satisfaction with the way the Armed Forces swiftly sent criminals, masquerading as Niger Delta militants, packing from the riverine communities, bordering Ogun and Lagos states.

He however warned that criminal elements may regroup in other parts of the state and therefore called on security agencies to forestall such moves.

Amosun also implored the Nigerian Army to support the Navy towards securing Tongeji Island against external aggression, while he promised continuous support for the military formations in Ogun State.

Speaking earlier, Major General Oyefolu, who was accompanied on the visit by other senior officers in the 81 Division, including the Commander, 35 Brigade, Brigadier General Basil Adonkie, noted that the Division under his Command, is leaving no stone unturned to ensure peace and security in Ogun and Lagos states.

The GOC also commended the state government for supporting security agencies to function effectively, adding that without peace and security, there can be no development.
