The police in Ogun State has said some individuals are planning to cause breach of public peace in the state by taking undue advantage of the lingering cash and fuel scarcity in the nation.
The Ogun police command said it has intelligence report that those planning the mayhem may attack banks and other public and private infrastructures in the State.
The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Frank Mba, who commended the residents of the State for their resilience and peaceful conduct in the face of the biting economic challenges, assured residents of the command’s resolve to protect lives and property.
In a statement, the police spokesman in Ogun, Abimbola Oyeyemi, revealed that the CP spoke at a confidence-building patrol conducted by the police and other security forces on Saturday.
“The CP further noted that intelligence at the disposal of the Command indicates that some criminal elements are planning to take advantage of the challenging economic situation to disrupt the peace being enjoyed in the State,” Oyeyemi said.
