Ngozi Onadeko, Oyo State Commissioner of Police, on Thursday donated food items and toiletries to Oluyole Cheshire Home on Sango-Eleyele Road, and Omolewa Motherless Babies’ Homes at Oritamefa, in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The Commissioner said that the police job is not exclusive to fighting crime but also relaying compassion to people, and contributing their quota to society’s development.

She was represented by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Operations, Abubakar Lawal, who stated that apart from the gesture being part of corporate social responsibility (CSR) of the police, the purpose of the visit was to enhance community policing.

Onadeko said: “We are showing the populace that we are not only fighting crime, we also want to partner with the society, so that they will know we are contributing our quota to the development of the society.”

She urged residents of the state to live in peace and seek the police if there is any problem, to take decisive actions.

Reacting to the donation, the Chairman of the Board of Management of Cheshire Home, Professor Oladele Layiwola, applauded the police commissioner’s gesture, saying that it was the first time the police would give them items.

At Omolewa Motherless Babies’ Home, the Assistant Matron, Mrs Aderinola Oke, also communicated her appreciation to Onadeko, stating, a similar commendation by Olayiwola, that it was the first time the motherless babies’ home would be visited by police officers and presented with gifts.

Mrs Oke said that the Home was a non-governmental organisation owned by you and me, and it is donations that we use to take care of the infants, pay staff salaries and maintain the home.

She prayed for the police commissioner and entire police workforce for being humane
