The Police Commissioner, Ekiti Command, Mr Babatunde Mobayo, in a statement in Ado Ekiti , on Wednesday, urged the citizens to beware of whom they harbour as strangers.

Mobayo stated that the armed hoodlums had concluded plans to start entering the state in batches and continue to hatch their insidious plans against the residents of the state.

“It has come to the notice of Ekiti State Police Command through intelligence gathering that some group of persons suspected to be armed hoodlums and criminally minded aliens have concluded their plans to enter Ekiti State in their large number in order to unleash evil, cause havoc and create apprehension.

“Furthermore, intelligence gathering has it that the first set of the armed and criminally minded hoodlums will arrive the State with the pretence of settling peacefully with their host communities while the other set will come later to launch attacks and cause havoc on the innocent populace.

“In view of this, the Commissioner of Police, Ekiti State Command, implores all and sundry to be security conscious, extremely vigilant and report to the police immediately any suspected person or group of persons arriving, residing or found perambulating their environs.
