Security matters is a very crucial issues in a any community and needs to be dealt with accordingly to improve the well being of the members. Alcase was when the cases were on increase, the authority decided to institute security agents who were to patrol the area and had full authingly on relating issues. After registering alot of successes, the office was again reviewed abd some new personel registered, despite the general good work of the committee, some personel decided to use the opportunity to fulfill their own mission eg sleeping with some single women, stealing people's property etc. despite their duty to maintain the security of the place. One was cited coming out of a single woman's house although he didn't admit to commiting such offence but time came when he attemted to steal a goat from a neighbourhood, an alarm ws made, He ran in a reversed direction but an am bush was laid on his way and captured/caught. He admitted his crime before the committee and was properly penalised accordingly to the law. this meant the end of the begining of causing insecurity in the area as a whole.
