A former Inspector General of Police, IGP, Mr. Mike Okiro, has described Osun, Southwest Nigeria as a more peaceful and secure state than many others in the country.
Okiro, who is the Chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC), was speaking when he undertook a tour of police formations in the state and paid a courtesy visit on the state governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola in his office in Osogbo, the state capital, on Friday.
The former IGP, who was accompanied on the trip by the Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 11, David Omojola and the Osun State Commissioner of Police, Mrs. Dorothy Gimba, added that Osun has the lowest crime rate in the country.
Okiro noted that the state security profile has made it an attractive destination for many investors.
He said the influx of people and investors to Osun was as a result of the security guarantee in the state, adding that security agencies in the state are doing very well in protecting people, lives, properties and investments.
Okiro stated that throughout his stay in the state, he did not receive any report of security breach.
