Ogun Robberies: CP Orders Joint Patrol To Curb Criminal Activities


The Ogun State Police Command has ordered a joint patrol comprising men of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Police Mobile Force and conventional policemen to curb criminal activities on Victory Estate, in the Ota area of the state.

They also complained about alleged police extortion of victims and indifference in handling reported robbery cases.

But the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a statement said the state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Illyasu, had directed the Area Commander of the area to meet with the residents of the estate.

“The community development association chairman of the estate, Mr Tajudeen Hassan, informed the area commander that the police at the Onipanu division have been of great help to them.

“They went further to explain that three cases of burglary and stealing reported by the residents of the estate have been charged to court.

“On the issue of policemen demanding money, the chairman said there was no such thing. He said the only thing they needed was constant police patrol of the estate, which is a developing area.

“On the strength of the discussion, the Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyasu, ordered a joint patrol of the area by men from FSARS, PMF, as well as conventional policemen in order to checkmate any form of criminal activities in the area.”

The CDA chairman, however, said nobody praised the police when the area commander visited, adding that the police actually promised to provide the patrol team to curb robberies on the estate.
