No fewer than 248 constables from the Osun State Police Command have passed out of the Mobile Force Training College, Ila Orangun.

The newly passed out constables who were posted to the state after spending nine months at the Police College in Ikeja, Osun State were trained within a period of 10 days in weapon handling of both rifles/pistols and other courses in order to enhance efficient service delivery of the command in the State.

The other courses include foot drill, arms drill, musketry, principles of marksmanship, excort general, vehicular patrol drill, combat manoeuvres among others.

In his speech, the State commissioner of police, Adeoye Olafimihan, appreciated the efforts of the Governor, Mr Rauf Aregbesola in ensuring a crime free state and urged the new officers to be honest and law abiding.

Olafimihan said the new constables have been entrusted with the responsibility of protesting lives and property and should not be found wanton in that regard.

He urged the officers not to violate the rights of the people they have sworn to protect.

Also, the Commandant of the training college, ACP Audu Ali, implored the officers to discharge their duties effectively as they go to their respective stations.

Earlier in his speech, the director of security, office of the Governor who represented the state Governor, Mr Komolafe Taofeek, congratulated the new officers, urging them not to be just a police man in uniform but to strive for excellence.
