The Commissioner of Police in the state, Oyeyemi Oyediran, said “the Command is aware of the agendas of the residents to stage a protest in order to air their anger.”
“He appealed to residents of the state to desist from such activities. Security agents have been notified to ensure the safety of residents and apprehend offenders of the law.”
