…Advises CSOs to stop tarnishing the reputation of some hardworking individuals in the society
The Benin Solidarity Movement (BSM) Worldwide has passed vote of confidence of CP Abutu Yaro, Edo State Commissioner of Police, who the group said under 5 months that he arrived the State, he has completely reduced the crime rate in the state to the lowest level and expressed worry over the manner some self-style civil society groups go about without any admiration for humankind seek to destroy the reputation of some hard working individuals in the society.
Abutu Yaro resumed office as Edo State Commissioner of Police in April, 2022 as the 43rd CP in the history of the command.
In a message signed by Ambassador Curtis Eghosa Ugbo and Ms. Esohe Adun, President and Acting General-Secretary respectively, the Movement said that some of the CSO’s who are blackmailers/extortionists go to the extent of trying to gain public sympathy of their illegalities to the time tested claim that they are the voice of the voiceless when in real fact their mission is self-glorification cum undulation which cannot be attuned to anything good.
Part of the message reads, “The leadership of the Benin Solidarity Movement (BSM) worldwide is quite infuriated over the manner some self-styled civil society groups go about without any admiration for humankind seek to destroy the reputation of some hardworking individuals in the society.
“These blackmailers/extortionists, the group said go to the extent of trying to gain public sympathy of their illegalities to the time tested claim that they are the voice of the voiceless when in real fact their mission is self-glorification cum undulation which cannot be attuned to anything good.
“Over the years these groups of charlatans who got into the so called human rights agitation for lack of employment have turned themselves into wolves that sniff for easy money at the slightest opportunity but traitor the moment their monetary demands are not met or rejected.
“These pseudo civil society activists abound in large quantity in the streets of major Nigerian cities including Benin City and environs. They derive joy in been sadistic in their modus of operandi to the extent that you can expect them to give the wrong side of the coin to whoever they wish to ‘obtain’.”
Going further, the Movement added, “the most recent of such a case is the accusation piled on Abutu Yaro, the hardworking Commissioner of Police (CP) of Edo State who under 5 months that he arrived in the Edo State Command; he has completely reduced the crime rate in the State to the lowest level.
“Since his resumption in Edo State he has not only changed the narrative of the criminal activities in the state he has sanitized the police force with zero tolerance for corrupt practices within the force. To accentuate his hatred for illegalities within his command he has set up a very strong committee peopled by distinguished members of the public to checkmate such illegalities.
“As we speak now Yaro has clamped down on criminals operating in the state. The new Sheriff has let criminal elements in the state to know that it is a no go area for them.
“Within his short space of time as the boss of the state Police Command, Yaro has created tactical units such as Command and Control Intelligence, Rapid Response Squad, CP Monitoring Team and Anti-Kidnapping annexes within Edo North, Edo Central and Edo South. He also changed posting of DPO’s to more active and effective ones. And he raises serious war against corrupt police officers. Kidnapping activities is no longer a thing of business anymore for kidnappers as CP Abutu Yaro doesn’t believe anything like negotiating with kidnappers rather he takes the battle to them. It is in CP Abutu Yaro’s time that people know that police can ambush kidnappers, neutralize them and recover their operational arms. We the people of Edo State should join the police in the war against crime in Edo State.
“Now, in Edo, the residents live a life of peace as the hydra headed issue of crime and criminality has been brought to the lowest minimum courtesy of CP Abutu Yaro’s efficiency.
“So, to shower CP Yaro with accolades is not out of place as it is often said he who does exceptional things deserves praise and commendation.
“In CP Yaro time, The Committee called Human Rights and Extortion Investigation Unit which is against police extortion and human rights abuses has a reputable lawyer as Desk Officer with other high net worth individuals as members.
“We can go on and on reeling the laudable achievements of CP Yaro Abutu in his few months in Edo State. So, all these illegal bodies laying claims to being human rights activist to tarnish the image of innocent people should better change their style.
“BSM Worldwide would advise them to find a way to get across to the agbado and beans youths promising politician to rehabilitate them and keep them busy.”
