The Ogun State Police Command has deployed the Area Commander, Sagamu Area Command, ACP Ali Janga, and more than 4 (four) teams of Policemen – including Police Mobile Force and Special Anti-Robbery Squad personnel with an Armoured Personnel Carrier to the communities being attacked by some armed hoodlums suspected to be militants in Ogijo, in Sagamu Local Government Area.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Department of Operations, DCP Bello Makwashi, on behalf of the Commissioner of Police Ogun State, carried out the deployment after a series of consultations on the necessary measures to be put in place to tackle the activities of the militants.
In a press release issued in Abeokuta and signed by the Ogun State Command Public Relations Oficer, SP Muyiwa Adejobi, said that Janga would remain in the area of operation to monitor operational and administrative engagements of the policemen deployed to the areas for the special operation in the affected communities, which include Elepete, Imuti, Kajola, Magbon and Ajegunle.
The Command appealed to the fleeing residents of the areas to return back to their respective communities, since normalcy had returned to the areas. The presence of policemen in the affected areas would definitely fortify the security of life and property.
The Command also encourages the general public particularly, residents of the affected communities, to support the police in the fight against the deadly criminals and release useful information to the police about the plans/activities of the militants, who have been attacking and killing innocent Nigerians in the areas.
