However, on Wednesday night, Fayemi said that the matter will be reviewed because it is one of great concern to both governors and citizens because of the security challenges.

“We know that state police is an issue of interest and concern to the citizens and governors themselves and we will review it and make our position as forum known soon,” he said.
