Osun State Police Command has asked people to disregard rumour of attack in Modakeke.
According to the statement made available to Prestige Online by SP Opalola Yemisi Olawoyin on behalf of the Commissioner of Police, Osun State Police Command, the news was fake and a blatant lie!
The statement reads:
“ It has become increasingly necessary to keep you abreast of the incident that occurred in Modakeke last night, 16th May, 2021 and has been trending on the social media.
I want to categorically state that, it was an erroneous believe that some people came to attack people from Famia axis.
The news was fake and a blatant lie!
The true situation as gathered is that; the local vigilantes guiding the area against thieves & hoodlums were on their routine SHOW OF FORCE like any other places, to alert the people of community of their presence & assure them of safety.
But because of what happened recently, people became apprehensive, thinking they were under attack.
The Commissioner of Police, CP Olawale OLOKODE, psc wishes to assure the good people of Osun of his unrelenting commitment to ensure adequate security of the state, which he is overseeing without any fear of attack or molestation.
He therefore appeals to everyone to timely report any strange movement around them or anyone suspected to be of questionable character.
He urged everyone to go about their lawful businesses without any fear of insecurity”.
