The Osun State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has enjoined the state command led by Commissioner of Police, Kehinde Longe to be more proactive in the discharge of its statutory duties of securing lives and property of Osun people.
Sooko TAJUDEEN LAWAL, Acting Chairman, in a statement issued by the party’s Director of Media and Information, Chief Kola Olabisi, in Osogbo, on Monday, said the party lauded the reported arrest of one Fatai Abass, a notorious cultist.
ADULAWO NEWS reports that the Osun State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Mrs Yemisi Opalola, confirmed the arrest of Abass, 23, popularly known as ‘Gbefawo’ by the operatives of the Anti-cultism Squad at Oke-Baale area of Osogbo few days ago.

In Lawal’s words, “It is never too late for the Osun State Police Command to be alive to its constitutional responsibility of ensuring security of lives and property.
“It is wicked and criminal for the police to be selective in the performance of their statutory duties for what-ever reason.
“It is strange and funny that some of the hoodlums on the wanted list of the police are also enjoying police security whenever they are sighted in the public.
“The Osun State Commissioner of Police should tell the public the efforts that his command has been making to arrest and prosecute the following daredevil and notorious political thugs who have been wining and dining with the sacked Governor Ademola Adeleke:
“Olalekan Ajagungbade a.k.a. ‘Emir’ who hails from Osogbo; Sikiru Oyeniyi a.k.a. ‘Ado Igbona’ who hails from Olorunda; Solomon Adefioye Adedimeji a.k.a. ‘Solo Iwara’ who hails from Atakumosa; Wakeel Nurudeen a.k.a. ‘Alowonle’ who hails from Osogbo and Bode Olakayode a.k.a. ‘Bode Itaapa’ who hails from Atakumosa.
“The other deadly thugs who have been attacking, maiming and killing the members and supporters of the opposition are: Ibrahim Gbadamosi a.k.a. ‘Gbedu’ who hails from Boripe; Wakeel Dokky who hails from Ede; Yemi Aleba who hails from Ede; Kareem Oladeji Aflao who hails from Ede; Taye Trouble who hails from Ede; Baba Ibeji Thunder who hails from Ede; Sekere Olota who hails from Ede and Oriade OPC who also hails from Ede,” the statement reads.
