Oyo state Commissioner of Police, CP Adebowale Williams, Monday, ordered full-scale investigations into the alleged destruction of political party billboards in some parts of the state by some criminal minded agents of mischief.
CP Williams in a statement on his behalf by the Oyo state Police Public Relations Officer, SP Adewale Osifeso, said the command would leave no stone unturned in its quest for the sustainability of the relative peace and tranquility enjoyed in the state.
The CP cautioned political big-wigs and other stakeholders in the state “to put a leash on their overzealous loyalists and supporters who are driven by the ideologies of enforcing dominance and territorialism through needless aggression and violence.”
Appealing to parents, guardians and leaders of varying degrees of influence in and across the state to prevail on their wards against being used as canon-fodder and destructive tools, the CP warned that anyone caught disturbing the peace or inciting violence through deeds or otherwise shall be decisively dealt with in accordance with relevant laws and statutes of the federation.
CP Williams also urged the people to provide credible and timely information capable of nipping crime in the bud to the Police with assurances of treating such with utmost discretion.
