Ondo Security: Akeredolu orders Compulsory Use of CCTV Devices

Ondo State Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu has signed an Executive Order for compulsory installation and use of close circuit television (CCTV) devices in all public and private institutions in the state.

This is contained in a statement issued by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Richard Olatunde, on Saturday in Akure.

Akeredolu said that the order had become imperative in view of the increasing rate of insecurity in the country and the need to ensure security of lives and property in all public and private institutions as well as centres across the state.

According to him, the order is pursuant to Section 176 (2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, which vests such power in the governors, as the chief executives of their states.

“The executive order shall be enforced at all religious places of worship, financial institutions (of all kinds), event centres, supermarkets and educational institutions (schools).

“It will also be enforced in hotels/motels, guest houses, inns, restaurants, clinics and health centres, eateries (of all kinds), recreation or vehicular parks and other places regularly used by the public,” he said
