Ogun command denies attack on highway by suspected nomads


Nigerian Police

The Ogun State Police Command has denied the attack by suspected herdsmen on Lagos-Ibadan expressway. Some people were seen crying and pleading with the alleged attackers not to kill them. 

But the command, in a statement in Abeokuta yesterday, insisted that the allegation was false.The spokesman, Abimbola, said: “To start with, there is no attack by herdsmen or any other group in all the stretch of the expressways across and within Ogun State. We make bold to say that the alleged attack been posted on social media is a lie from pit of hell, It is being peddled by those who are not happy with the peaceful atmosphere in Ogun State.

“The graphic attached to the post is a picture of an accident which occurred about eight years ago exactly on July 31, 2010 to be precise, while the purported voice recording was a stage-managed one. 

“The Lagos/Ibadan express road is one of the busiest roads in Nigeria and the command is not oblivious of that fact, for that reason, there has been massive deployment of police operatives from FSARS, anti-kidnapping/cultist unit, PMF as well as conventional policemen and monitoring operatives and patrols to ward off any act of criminal activities on that road.”
