Inspector General of Police (IGP) Baba Usman Alkali yesterday warned Nigerians against giving policemen wrong information on any security issue.
He spoke while commissioning the newly-built Ogele police station in Asa Local Government Area of Kwara State.
Represented by the Commissioner of Police, Kwara State Command, Amienbo Assayomo, the police chief said the approval was given for the establishment of the Ogele police station because of the community’s growing population.
He urged the residents not to damage the facilities.
The IG said 12 personnel have been deployed to Ogele, adding that “there will be reinforcement from the police headquarters in Ilorin whenever the need arises.”
He tasked the community with the provision of official quarters, boreholes and vehicles for the effective running of the police station. The Aare of Ogele, Alhaji Abubakar Ishola Akanbi, thanked the police IG and the commissioner of police in the state for approving the establishment of the Ogele police station.
He assured them of the cooperation of his people in the effective running of the police station.
The monarch urged his subjects to continue to be law-abiding and live peacefully amongst themselves and their neighbours.
