He added that those who kidnapped Prof. Adegbehingbe of the Obafemi Awolowo University have also been arrested

He said police decided against publicizing their successes on those arrests for security reasons.


He was responding to claims by the governors that police were overwhelmed by the level of insecurity in the country.

The Ikire segment of the Ibadan-Ife expressway has become notorious for kidnapping in the last few months thereby instilling fear in motorists and commuters.

The kidnap of Prof. Adegbehingbe also reinforced the fear thereby causing outrage over the level of insecurity in Southwest.

The outrage was partly responsible for the security summit.

While commending the governors for supporting police operations in their various states, Oyebade insisted that more support, especially in the area of vehicles and technology, will further enhance the ability of the force to offer a more effective policing.
