The Towulade Akinale, in Ewekoro Local Government Areamof Ogun State, Oba Olufemi Ogunleye, has called for a strong synergy among the various security outfits in Nigeria to suppress the incessant killings of innocent Nigerians by armed bandits.
Speaking while receiving the new Divisional Officer of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp in the council, area, Mr. Theophilus Omirin in his palace at the weekend. Oba Ogunleye lamented that the competitive ego of the individual security outfit among the multifarious operatives, has contributed to their ineffectiveness in protecting the citizenry.
The traditional ruler cautioned against trivializing the criminality of the incessant killings by engaging in polemics over whether the culprits were bandits or herdsmen as being flaunted by the Police over the brutal murder of a prominent woman in Ondo state.
“There is need for Nigeria to redraw our security architecture and make all security outfits operate as if we are in a state of emergency so that all of them, the Police, Army, Navy, Air force, Civil Defence and other state security apparatus, to be deployed to all cronies of the country for vigil”, Oba Ogunleye insisted.
He commended the Civil Defence Corp in the Ewekoro Local Government for their quick response to nib in the bud any surfacing security challenge in the area.
The Divisional Officer expressed appreciation to the traditional ruler for cooperation and support for security outfits, particularly the Civil Defence, accommodated in Akinale. 
Omirin pleaded with the traditional ruler for  further assistance on various infrastructure that could enhance their performance in the zone.
