The Ogun State police command has come out to say that the report on an online news website (not hotjist.com) that a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) passed on after beating a masquerade is mischievous and fake news.

The Public Relations Officer of the command, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi in a press release on Sunday afternoon said that the late DPO of the Ibara Police Station, had been on the sick bed for the past one month prior to his demise.

RE UNFORTUNATE DEATH OF DPO IBARA AND THE ARREST OF MASQUERADE.

The attention of Ogun state police command has been drawn to a mischievous information circulating on social media attributing the untimely death of one of the finest, humble and dedicated officers of the command to the recent arrest of a recalcitrant masequrade who violated the social distancing directives of the Federal and state government.

The command wouldn’t have joined issue with those circulating the fake news but the wrong and mischievous impression needs to be clarified.

The late DPO has been on sick bed for the past one month now battling with an ailment which later resulted to his untimely death.

Contrary to what the mischief maker wanted the public to believe, the late DPO was not on duty when the said masequrade was arrested because he was in the hospital.

The masquerade was arrested on Sunday 29th of March 2020 for violating the government directives while the DPO was on sick bed at Federal Medical Center Idi-Aba Abeokuta, until he breathed his last, he was not even aware of the said masquerade’s arrest.

It will be ignorant of anyone to attribute his death to the arrest of the recalcitrant masequrade just to attract traffic to his or her blog.

Anybody who may have had reason to meet the late DPO when he was alive will attest to his humble and polite nature. He was an embodiment of what a gentleman officer should be and the Nigeria police force, Ogun state police command in particular will forever miss him.

To those circulating the unfunded rumour, your mischievous information will not deter us from carrying out our constitutional duty no matter who is involved.

If Pastors and Imams can be arrested for violating the government directives, no masequrade should think of been above the law.

May the good Lord bless the soul of our departed officer and console his family and friends.

DSP ABIMBOLA OYEYEMI,
POLICE PUBLIC RELATIONS OFFICER,
FOR : COMMISSIONER OF POLICE,

OGUN STATE COMMAND
