The Osun State Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, has given actionable orders to the Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers and Tactical Commanders to embark on rigorous/intensive operations and intelligence-led policing to ensure peace in the state.
This development is coming as the state is facing attacks and counter-attacks by individuals, political parties/supporters, and transporters that unfold after the governorship election in the State.
In a statement signed by the command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Yemisi Opalola, the commissioner of Police gave the order to ensure the public places are not taken over by the criminal-minded individuals and groups thereby stemming the tide of this unwarranted trend.
Olokode, while giving the command’s security action plans to his lieutenants to tackle all forms of crimes in the state, admonished the political gladiators to play the game according to the rules.
The police boss urged the people of the state to “continue with their legitimate businesses as police personnel in collaboration with the other security agents have been charged to maintain absolute peace.
“Finally, he implores members of the public to give timely and actionable information to the police as the saying that, “a stitch in time saves nine,” the statement read.
