Individuals who wear T-Shirts on which the word ‘Police’ is inscribed will be arrested and prosecuted, the leadership of the Ogun State Police Command said at the weekend.
The Command’s Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said in Abeokuta, the state capital, that information at the disposal of the police has established that the T-Shirts are being use to commit various crimes in the society.
Similarly, the command warned that shops where such materials are being sold will be closed and the owners prosecuted. “The Command will beam its searchlight on dealers of shops where T-Shirts with Police inscriptions are stored or sold, for these shirts are being used to commit crimes in the state and enough is enough. The Command wishes to warn that anyone found in possession of these shirts or clothing will be arrested and charged to court accordingly,” Mr Adejobi said.
He also appealed to the public to understand that these steps taken by the police are meant to ensure more effective policing in Ogun State.
Warning all motorcyclists
The command also said it will no longer allow commercial motorcyclists to carry more than one passenger at a time as some hoodlums are now taking advantage of the situation to rob innocent citizens.
“This development has built up a great threat to security in the state and the command is set to nip it in the bud,” the police imagemaker said.
The Command, however, advised members of the public on the need to always supply the police with information, in order to have a crime free society.
“This can be achieved by calling 08037168147,08032136765 and 08123822910,” Mr Adejobi said.
