The Ogun State House of Assembly on Thursday expressed concern over incessant armed robbery attacks in the Ago Iwoye area of the state.

The Speaker of the House, Olakunle Oluomo, at the plenary in Abeokuta, charged the state’s Commissioner of Police to improve the force’s operational surveillance in a bid to address the problem.

He was reacting to a submission by a member representing Ijebu North II State Constituency, Dare Kadiri, who lamented incessant robbery incidents in the constituency.
