EKITI State Security Council on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 appealed to landlords, hoteliers to know the kind of people they

offer accommodation as one of the measures the government had taken to curb kidnapping and other crimes in the state.

It would also introduce check points in strategic places across the state.

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Idowu Adelusi, who disclosed this in Ado-Ekiti, pointed out that the measures were to protect life and property.

According to the council, other measures include the banning of usage of tinted classes, while there would be frequent hotel checks, with a call to hoteliers

to monitor their customers and offer information to security agents on any suspected person.

The council warned that any hotel linked to criminals would be sealed up, while plantations of Indian hemps and cannabis would also be impounded

henceforth, stressing that culprits would be prosecuted as efforts would be made for the enactment of relevant laws to decisively deal with the

criminals and their accomplices.

The Council also warned that the state would not condone any invasion of foreign bodies or security threat before and after the May 29, 2015 handing over date, advising those muting the idea to drop it
