The new coverage area, which now stretches to the two toll-gate areas, including the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway and the Asejiri end of the Ibadan-Ife Expressway, is to help in security as well as traffic management.

The governor who commissioned the facilities on Thursday, June 18, 2020, revealed that the entire system has been reconfigured and that the state has acquired license for the software for life and would no longer pay internet access fees of N3.5 million/month.

According to him, everyone can log into the website, free of charge, and once they complete the process, with just a press of the button they can alert operatives of crimes, their location & visuals will show up on the system.

“This evening, we recommissioned the expanded Security Control Room and City Watch facilities at the Oyo State Security Trust Fund Headquarters, Onireke, Jericho, Ibadan. I reiterated our administration’s commitment to making Oyo State safe and secure for all within its borders,” he said.

“For those familiar with my statements during my campaign trail, you’ll recall that I was going to scrap this entire architecture because the it was like a white elephant project. But I was convinced to give it another shot and today we have been rewarded with a functional centre.

“The entire system has been reconfigured so that we no longer need to pay internet access fees of N3.5 million/month. Also, we have acquired the license for the software for life so no longer need to run the trial version we met. This facility now wholly belongs to Oyo State.

“With this system, we can easily monitor human and vehicular traffic and even capture number plates of vehicles.

“Also, a crime alert platform has been built into the Oyo State website. Everyone can log into the website, free of charge, and once they complete the process, with just a press of the button they can alert operatives of crimes, their location & visuals will show up on the system.
