 The Commissioner of Police, Kwara State Police Command, Cp Kayode Egbetokun, has assured people of the state of the Command’s commitment to the security and safety of lives and property of the citizens.

The assurance is contained in a statement issued on Friday in which the Command dismissed as a false alarm, rumours spreading across the state that a helicopter was sighted at Lalaji town, in Edu Local Government Area of the state, discharging men bearing dangerous weapons in the bushes.

“The Command for the umpteenth time is assuring the people of Kwara State of its capability to provide security for the citizens. The people sighted at Lalaji town were a team from Padlink Resources Limited, who were at the location to conduct geological mapping and mineral exploration, with the approval from the Federal Ministry of Mine and Steel Development under the National Integrated Mineral exploration project (NIMEP),” the statement signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, Kwara State Command, Dsp Okasanmi Ajayi, said.

“The good people of the state are advised to go about their normal businesses, and disregard the false news of terrorists invading the state. The Nigeria Police Force and sister security agencies in the state are working round the clock to ensure that good people of Kwara sleep with their two eyes closed,” the statement said.
