Insecurity: Akeredolu orders compulsory use of CCTV in worship centres, schools, hospitals, others

Akeredolu blames FG for the delay in the Ondo seaport project.

In a bid to curb security breaches in Ondo State, Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu, has directed that public and private institutions across the state must install functional Close Circuit Television, CCTV, in their facilities.

The move was made over the weekend when the governor signed an executive order for the compulsory installation and use of CCTV.

The executive order, according to the governor, became necessary due to the rising level of insecurity in the nation and the need to guarantee the security of people’s lives and property at all public and private institutions and centres throughout the state.

In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Richard Olatunde, the executive order would be enforced at all religious places of worship, financial institutions, event centres, as well as supermarkets.

Other facilities where the enforcement would be carried out include educational institutions, hotels, motels, guest houses, inns, restaurants, clinics and health centres, eateries, recreation or vehicular parks, and other places regularly used by the public.

He maintained that the directive was pursuant to Section 176 (2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria which vested in the governor, the chief executive powers of the state.

The statement further revealed that the violators of the order will be prosecuted in accordance with Section 203 of the Criminal Code (Cap. 37) Laws of Ondo State of Nigeria.
