A NEW PATH TO LASTING PEACE
IKORODU DIVISION PEACE INITIATIVE LTD/GTE
Is here to put in place a sustainable local security system and arrangement aimed at complimenting the efforts of governments at various levels
and security agencies in ensuring safety of lives and properties, thereby facilitating the promotion of peace and commerce.
The Ikorodu Division Peace Initiative LTD/GTE (IDPIL/G) is a community initiative and a ‘child of necessity’ birthed by the rising wave in crime and general state of insecurity within Ikorodu Division in recent time, especially the nefarious activities of the cult groups, Land grabbers and some other miscreants.
Consequently and knowing the security peculiarities of the major towns in Ikorodu Division and noting the presence of vigilante groups in these towns, the Royal Fathers in consultation with some respected elders of the community came together to fashion out a body that would unify and coordinate the activities and operational aspects of the Vigilante groups, hence amalgamation of the various vigilante groups in Ikorodu Division into one indivisible Local Joint Task Force after security scrutiny of the selected members. It is now called “Joint Task Force” because their operations are jointly carried out in partnership with officers of the Nigerian Police Force.
