The Ogun State Police Command wishes to refute the claims of Hon Remmy Hazzan of the Ogun State House of Assembly that the raid conducted on the Omu Ijebu home of his father was politically motivated.
It will be recalled that the command has declared a war on cultists and hoodlums in the state particularly in Ijebu and Sagamu axis with a bid to checkmate their excesses and stop their criminal activities.
The command in conjunction with other security agencies in the state has commenced the flushing out of hoodlums and cultists in the state for the past one month, and the raids were coordinated by the Deputy Commissioner of Police, B Department Operations of the Command DCP Mohammed Abdulkadri and 29 cultists out of those arrested were today (Tuesday) charged to court.
The command wants to put the records straight that the honourable’s father’s house harbours some cultists including the younger brothers of Hon Remmy Hazzan who had at one time been arrested by the command for their involvement in many disturbances in Ijebu area in 2012; and they (Hassan’s brothers) confessed to being members of the Aye Confraternity (Black Axe) but were not met in that house during the last raid in Omu Ijebu.
The command appeals to the general public to disregard the honourable’s sentiment of being politically harassed by the police and support the police in its effort to rid Ogun State of hoodlums as the raid of black spots and criminals’ hideouts in Ogun continues.
