The Nigeria Police Force has debunked the widely circulated rumour that the Ogun state Commissioner of Police, Ahmed Iliyasu has been redeployed to another state.
The Deputy Inspector General of Police incharge of South-West state, DIG Jubril Yakubu claimed Iliyassu remains the head of the Police force in the state.
Recall that there is a widely circulated report that the Inspector General of Police has ordered the redeployment of Iliyasu to another state and replace him by CP Gbenga Adeyanju from Ondo state .
However, DIG Yakubu maintained that Iliyasu would be in charge of the command, while CP Adeyanju would only head the Ogun Central Senatorial district during the monitoring of the general elections by the Police force.
The DIG stressed that the Police needed to bring three other CPs to the state to be in charge of the three senatorial district for peaceful election.
He added that the commissioner of police in Ekiti state, CP Fimihan Adeoye would be in charge of Ogun west, while CP Yemi Agunbiade would head the Police team for Ogun Central.
He said, “The three commissioners that were redeployed to Ogun state would be posted to all the senatorial districts.
“The sitting commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Iliyassu will be here in the force headquarters and he is the one in charge here.
“Iliyassu is the commissioner of Police and three other CP are coming to assist him so as to have a peaceful election.
“All the polling units will be fully covered by the Police and our sister agencies. We have the Customs, Immigration, Civil Defence, they are all supporting us”
When asked on the actual number of the Policemen to be deployed in the state for the election, the DIG said “The numbers are not our problem, I can assure you that we will cover all the polling units”.
