Jalige said the Commissioner of Police (CP), Mr Yekini Ayoku, has called on all stakeholders and communities concerned to exercise restraint.

He reiterated, ”security is undoubtedly everybody’s business, but unguarded communication has the potential to mar the ongoing concerted efforts being made to reduce the negative impact of these challenges.

”This is to enable farmers to make maximum use of this farming season to boost the economy of the state.”
