PRESS RELEASE


PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT NO. 49/2020



RE: ENDSARS PROTEST:

As we are all aware of the ongoing protests against SARS in some parts of the country, including Osun State. We are also aware of the violent dimension that the EndSARS protest has taken in some states resulting in loss of lives and property.


The Commissioner of Police, Osun State Command, CP Undie J. Adie psc (+), is not against peaceful protest on EndSARS in the state. 


It should be noted however that the command has already complied with the directives of the IGP to withdraw SARS operatives from unauthorized duties, such as routine patrols, stop and search, monts of road blocks, traffic checks and investigation of cyber/internet crimes among others.


This reorganization of the operational modus of SARS should not be construed to mean an end to SARS or total removal of Police personnel from performing their general law enforcement duties. Other regular Police patrol teams including Swift Action Squad (SAS), Puff Adder, Safer highway patrol teams, Police Mobile Force etc. shall continue to carry out their routine patrols within and outside Osogbo metropolis to protect lives and property of the citizens of the State.


The intelligence availed the Command revealed that, miscreants under the guise of ENDSARS protesters have adopted new tactics in carrying out their nefarious activities. Therefore, in cognizance of security consequences of this, the Command is using this medium to inform the general public that, the Command is battle ready to curtail their excesses and will not fold its arms and allow disgruntled elements/social miscreants to capitalize on the situation and unleash mayhem on innocent citizens and also loot people’s properties as there are proper ways to channel their grievances rather than taking laws into their hands.


The Commissioner of Police advice members of the public especially parents/guardians, traditional rulers, community/religious leaders etc. to wade in and appeal to or warn their children/wards to desist from any act that could jeopardize the peaceful atmosphere of the State as anyone caught or found wanting will be made to face the full wrath of the law. 


The CP assures good people of the state to go about their legitimate business without fear of molestations from any individual or group as adequate security measures have been emplaced for maximum safety of all and sundry.


Finally, the Commissioner of Police solicits the support and cooperation of the members of the public in combating all forms of criminality.



Signed

SP OPALOLA YEMISI OLAWOYIN 

Police Public Relations Officer

For: Commissioner of Police

Osun State Command, Osogbo
