The Olubadan-designate, High Chief Saliu Adetunji, has urged members of the public to cooperate with security agencies in the bid to promote peace and security in the country.

This is contained in a statement issued in Ibadan by Alhaji Adeola Oloko, the media aide to Olubadan-designate, and made available to newsmen on Sunday.

Adetunji gave the advice while receiving a delegation led by Director of the State Security Service (DSS) in Oyo State, Mr Laasan Baba, at his Popoyemoja, Ibadan residence.

Adetunji stated that the cooperation of the public in the area of intelligence gathering had become necessary to reduce crime rate to the barest minimum.

According to him, once intelligence gathering is accurate from the willing public, the possibility of identity mix-up would be significantly reduced.

He spoke in the same vein when the Commandant of Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, Mr John Adewoye , paid him a courtesy visit at the palace.

The statement added that the Olubadan-Designate has been admitted as a full member of the Ibadan Progressive Union, the oldest surviving socio-cultural club in Ibadan that was founded in 1930.

He was presented a cap, plaque and constitution of the union by the President, John Adeniji, and the secretary, Fatai Falola.

Falola said his union had produced five Olubadan of Ibadan, adding that his union had emerged as a stabilising factor in the polity.

He prayed for a prosperous, peaceful and progressive reign under the new monarch.
