The executive members of Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) Student Union (SU) in conjunction with the Nigerian Police Force and other security agencies embark on night patrol in Akungba community.
Recall that the Akungba community has been facing several challenges ranging from incessant road accidents, robbery and theft, among others.
In a bid to avert the issue of robbery and theft, one of the major challenges facing the university community, the student union executives took it as a point of duty to have a dialogue with the Nigeria Police Force to commence night patrol within Akungba community.
In an update released by the President of the union, Obagunwa Oluwasegun Supreme called on the student community to join hands with the security operatives to ensure law and order. He said:
“Security is not just the duty of the law enforcement agencies, security and safety of our community is the duty of everybody…Come one come all.
“Sequel to the security issues in Akungba community, the students’ union in conjunction with the Nigerian Police Force and other security agencies has commenced a ‘Night Patrol’.”
Comrade Supreme made a call for student volunteers to join the Union and police to ensuring a total stop to robbery and all other criminal activities in the community and to protect the lives and properties of the student Union members.
He further advised students that are currently in school to put off their generator set and reduce the volume of their sound system, and also stay indoors to aid and compliment the efforts of the night patrol team.
