"The donation of two Hilux patrol vehicles and construction of additional police posts by the community were meant to improve crime prevention and combat," he said.

Mr Fasuba Akinyele, Police Area Commander in Omu-Aran, on his part, listed the command's challenges to include inadequate operational vehicles and inadequate personnel.

He requested for establishment of a mini health clinic to cater for the health needs of personnel within the Area Command.
