Ogun State Police Command threaten Lagos Policemen over illegal seizure of Okada

The Ogun State Police Command has warned police officers in Isheri Police Division of Lagos State to stop enforcing Okada ban in Ogun territory.

It will be recalled that the Lagos State government had few months back banned the activities of Okada riders in some parts of the state.

But since the ban was emplaced, police officers of the state have allegedly been enforcing the ban beyond the state borders into Ogun territory, a development which hasn’t gone down well with the Ogun State police command.

And while conveying the displeasure of the command with the act, the Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer, Abimbola Oyeyemi, described the action as illegal, warning that officers caught would face the law.

He said, “If any officer is caught arresting motorcyclists under Ogun State, he will face the music because that will amount to illegal duty. You cannot come from a different state to come and arrest in another state without prior notice to the police command in that state. I believe if the Ogun State DPO, who is close to that place gets any of them, I know he is going to do the needful.”
