Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Ngozi Onadeko, on Monday, urged the public to give credible information to the police, especially on the attacks being carried out by motorcycle riders.
This was just as she paraded three suspects in connection with the clash which occurred at Iwo Road in Ibadan last Wednesday, leading to the death of one person.
Speaking during the parade at police command headquarters at Eleyele Area, Onadeko said that more tactical teams and police had been drafted, promising that the command would take care of the menace resulting from attacks by the okada riders.
The police boss pointed out that those perpetrating crime live in the society, saying that such contributions from members of the public would help in intelligence gathering, while more visibility policing would be performed by operatives.
Meanwhile, three suspects were paraded in connection with the Iwo Road clash which occurred last Wednesday, leading to the death of one person.
Briefing journalists on the arrest, the Commissioner of Police said that the crisis had erupted from issues between road transport workers who were in charge of the Park Management System and owners of a mall.
She said that the three suspects were being investigated on their involvement in the clash, promising that members of the public would be updated.
One of the suspects, Omoniyi Elemo, while speaking with journalists, said that as an employee of Park Management System, he and others were on the road directing vehicles, especially because of those that used to cause obstruction.
“A driver was on the road, and I asked him to leave the spot, but he responded by querying me whether I was a policeman.
“I asked him if he was not appreciative of the sanity we were bringing on the road, but he did not respond.
“Suddenly, I saw some men come out of a shopping complex, asking what audacity I had to address their boss. They started raining slaps on me, while another one came with a very big stone and hit the side of my face with it.
“That was all I knew. I just found myself in the hospital. I didn’t call anyone to foment trouble,” Elemo explained.
