Ogun Assembly Calls On Police Commissioners To Checkmate Alleged Extortion by Officers
Ogun State Commissioner of Police has been called upon to link up with his Oyo State counterpart to step up measures at checkmating the excesses of their men and officers mounting road blocks along the states boundary, especially at Bakatari and Omi-Adio.
The Speaker, Ogun State House of Assembly, Mr. Olakunle Oluomo made the call while reacting to the submission of a member representing Odeda State constituency, Mr. Oludaisi Elemide, who raised the issue under personal Explanations during plenary.
The Speaker stressed that the step became imperative, in order to prevent any unforeseen circumstances that might dent the image of the states and country in general.
Mr. Elemide had earlier explained that officers of the Nigeria Police Force were allegedly extorting and harassing travelers by mounting road blocks in the axis, saying such act was unhealthy to the society.
