I move from Lagos here down to Ogun State with the two CPs and made very clear statement of various review of their security scription and compliance level. After reviewing the security scription and the intelligence report, some quiet disturbing coming from some areas like Ogun where we have Ifo, Agbado, Akute, Ijoko u know I know areas in Ogun State, also making some haccessment of the situation going on there, some hoodlums, miscreants, what ever you call yourself, if you carry any weapons under any guys or name I will only call you hoodlum, criminal because under whatever circumstances we have a procedure, process whereby you can seek for your lively hood, that is that”
