Hoodlums frustrate Igbanke Police Station’s commissioning

BENIN- The  Odunanoba
of Benin Kingdom, Prince Henry Omorodion, has decried activities of a kidnap
syndicate operating in Igbanke axis of Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo
State, saying no meaningful project from government or any business group could
be drawn to an area where there are noticeable rudeness and acrimony.

Omorodion stated this 
in Igbontor-Igbanke against the back drop of threats by a kidnap syndicate to
deal with anyone who will be involved in the commissioning of a police station
in Igbanke, which the Benin Prince is currently building for the community.

The gang had openly
threatened to “deal with anyone who will be involved in the commissioning of
the police station as  Igbanke needs meaningful developmental projects and
not a police station.”

Speaking with newsmen at
the site of the project, Omorodion, who is also the Chairman of Hensmor Group,
said  it was to tame the excesses of criminality in the area that he
embarked on the building of the Police station and vowed that  in spite of
attempts by unscrupulous elements to frustrate his efforts at bringing
meaningful development to  Igbanke, “we will not be distracted from our
commitment.”

He said the idea of a
police station was to first of all guarantee peace and harmony before other
investments could be instituted in the area.

He appealed to the Edo
Police Command for surveillance and security beef-up in the area as he had
“stepped up activities to complete the project and hand it over to the Nigeria
Police Force for the benefit of Nigerians and humanity within the second
quarter of this year.”
