The Osun state government has said it may recall a helicopter bought by the immediate past administration for surveillance, but currently on lease.

This, it noted, was to curb rising spate of crime in the state and its environs.

The supervisor for the state ministry of information and strategy, Mr. Lani Baderinwa, said the helicopter was currently on lease, generating some income for the state.

He said the state might recall the helicopter and be deployed for the purpose it was initially bought, due to the rising crime rate in the state.

 According to him, the lease arrangement has assisted the government to keep the helicopter in good shape, at no extra cost.

The administration of the immediate past governor, Mr. Rauf Aregbesola, in February 2013 unveiled one passenger helicopter.

The then director, bureau of communications and strategy in the office of the governor, Semiu Okanlawon, had said in a statement that the helicopter, under a lease agreement,  would complement the state’s investments towards the protection of lives and property of its citizenry.
