correspondent in Ibadan, noting that the Police within the jurisdiction of its command is no longer arresting any of the protesters in Ibadan.
Part of the statement which read as thus confirmed that the Commissioner of Police, Oyo State Police Command, CP. Joe Nwachukwu, Enwonwu, psc wishes to draw the attention of the good people of Oyo State and the general public to the unconfirmed comments/story trending on social media accusing the Police in Oyo state Command to have continued to arrest EndSARS protesters in the State.
The CP wishes to state unequivocally that the protesters have been having a free day to carry out their protests undisturbed without Police interference. Consequent upon this, he, therefore, warns all those who have perfected strategies to continue to disturb the relative peace being enjoyed by the citizens of Oyo State to desist from such, as these unpalatable stories can degenerate to an uproar and give disgruntled elements an opportunity to unleash mayhem on innocent citizens in the State.
The CP, therefore, advises our partners in progress, members of the press to always confirm these untrue stories from relevant government agencies i.e the Police before going ahead to publish them.
Consequently, the CP reiterates his unrelenting efforts to the citizens of Oyo State to continue to give maximum protection to their lives and property while the protest last and beyond.
