JSIS was constituted two weeks ago by the State Government in response to the recent farmers/ herders clashes in Yewa Ketu area.

Members were drawn from the Nigeria Army, Nigeria Police, Department of State Security Service (DSS) and Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

The security vehicles, comprising 10 operational vans and 20 motorcycles equipped with communication gadgets, were received by Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of JSIS Operations, DCP Ahmed Abdullahi, at a ceremony attended by the security chiefs in the state.

Abiodun charged operatives of the JSIS to make optimal use of the equipment for protection of the state, hinting personnel of the South West Security Networks (SWSN) code named “Amotekun” will soon be deployed to reinforce JSIS.

He emphasised that equipping the taskforce with necessary working tools is more important than setting it up.

The Governor warned against ascribing crime to any ethnic nationality but addressing and treating criminals with appropriate provisions of the law.
