“ We however demand an immediate redeployment of the DCO else, we might take that as an act of sabotage by the police. we know the Commissioner of police in Ogun to be an hardworking man but he must quickly pay attention to DCOs like this who are capable of watering down the good works of the police in the state. “

“ Our Governor must be embark on a fact finding mission now, so as to see things for himself because the security situation in Ogun west is now worst than worst.
“ We are begging the commissioner of police to as well move to Ogun west to restore normalcy in the area. If good combing of the area is done the culprits might still be apprehended in no distance time but the most important thing to me as the state chairman of NANS in Ogun state is the safe release of our students.
