The operation was led by the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Agbor Police Headquarters, CSP Akintunde Oyeniran who during press time explained that the operation was a routine exercise to reassure the people of Agbor that their security is guaranteed and for them to call on them any time they need their service.
His words, ” This is a joint patrol by all security agencies in Agbor described as a show of force to show that we are fully on ground to counter criminal elements in whatever way they plan to come. We, however, strongly advise residents not to hesitate to give us information that will help us combat criminals.”

The Platoon Commander, Agbor Army Command, Captain M.O. Okoro, who also said the aggressive outing was to rekindle the confidence of the people, noted that the exercise was successful. He also appealed to residents to have confident in them and share any information about any crime movement as they do not work in isolation.
