The Ogun State Government has unveiled new uniform for officers of the Vigilante Service of Ogun State (VSO).
While launching the uniform in Abeokuta, the state capital, Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Jide Ojuko, said the idea was to reposition VSO for strategic operations and give it a suitable outlook that will enhance and make the VSO presentable to the public.
“With this new look, we expect better performance and service delivery in your operations. The public will want to see your new carriage, comportment, neatness and professionalism, so on behalf of the State government I congratulate you all.
He added, “I hereby charge our officers to be more proactive, renew your commitments and join hands with the state government in bringing crimes to the barest minimum in Ogun and environs.”
Also speaking at the event, the State Commander of VSO, Mr. Soji Ganzallo, re-emphasised the organisation’s dedication in collaborating with other security agencies in fighting crimes.
He also guaranteed that his men would continue to safeguard lives and property in various communities in the state.
Ganzallo, included that in order to fully equip the officers, regular training programmes had been embarked on for the challenges ahead of them.
He also enjoined members of the public to come forward vital information that would assist in discovering criminals and their hideouts in the state.
