Why We Rejected Suspects Brought To Us By Amotekun Operatives – Police Explains


Oyo State Police Command on Tuesday, revealed why it rejected some suspects brought to its Mokola and Iyaganku Divisional detention facilities by some operatives of Amotekun. According to the Command, the reason was due to their differences in policies and Modules Operandi guiding their operations. The Police Public Relations Officer of the Command, Fadeyi Olugbenga, made this disclosure in a statement on Tuesday. He explained that the Nigeria Police force as an organization is jurisdiction sensitive and structured in such a way that offences committed in a particular Area of Responsibility (AOR) cannot be treated in another, as this is done for efficiency and accountability sake. His statement reads, “The news making the rounds about their refusal to admit the robbery suspects brought by Amotekun was obviously fake news to illustrate that the Police is uncooperative towards jointly combating crime with the said body.” “The Command is committed towards partnering with sister agencies and local security outfits towards bringing the level of crime to the barest minimal in the State.” He further explained that the Amotekun operatives had earlier visited Mokola Division where they were advised to the best of the knowledge of the receiving officers and with the information at their disposal that the Division with the AOR to best handle the case is Iyaganku Division. He however, said that the Amotekun officers, upon getting to Iyaganku Division, the officers at the receiving end after critically analyzing the story taking its origin into consideration did not reject the suspect but directed that the suspects be taking to Agodi Division, a directive that was disregarded which led to the misconception making the rounds. He noted that some of the suspects arrested and brought to the station by some security operatives are usually brought in terrible conditions and therefore are not admissible for detention in Police custody. Lastly, Fedeyi called on men of various security operatives within the State to desist from inflicting serious bodily damages to suspects.
