Against the background of the troubling trends on Naira swap in some parts of the country, the Kwara State Police Command said it is beefing up security around all financial institutions in the state, warning people with criminal intents to desist or face the music.

A statement by the Command’s spokesperson, SP Okasanmi Ajayi at the weekend said “Intelligence available to the Police indicates that hoodlums have perfected plans to replicate the lawlessness that was unleashed on some banks in some states of the country, owing to the crisis emanating from the Naira note swap that is ongoing in Nigeria at present, which the government is doing all within its power to normalize.

“The command wishes to assure the good people of Kwara State of the command’s capacity to deal ruthlessly with any lawbreaker. Criminals are therefore advised to shelve any such dastardly idea.

“Consequently, the Commissioner of Police, Kwara State, CP Paul Odama, psc (+), has ordered aggressive patrols of banks and other financial facilities across the length and breath of the state, warning criminal elements in the state to change their minds as anyone arrested would be met with heavy consequences.

“A word, they say, is enough for the wise”. The statement concluded.
