Oyo Police Denies Arresting Those Who Reported Herdsmen Attacks

We did not arrest complainants of Herders attacks - Oyo State Police Command

The Police in Oyo State have denied insinuations in some quarters that people who reported attacks by herdsmen were detained and told to pay money for bail before being released in the Ibarapa axis of the state, Njenje Media News reports.

Police spokesman, Fadeyi Olugbenga in a statement, said the allegations as unfounded and baseless, noting that after the arrest of Iskilu Wakili and two others, and their transfer to the State Criminal Investigation Department, (CID), Iyaganku Ibadan, investigation on the suspects has begun.

In his words:

“Police command is more than ever willing to partner with members of the public in prompt response to complaints and intelligence gathered, hence members of the public are enjoined not to relent in rendering prompt and accurate information devoid of any form of social coloration with the police as we collectively birth the peaceful Oyo State of our dreams.”
