The Commissioner of Police in Osun, Mr. Olawale Olokode, has ordered the immediate disbandment of his Surveillance Squad because of unprofessional conduct by its members.
This is contained in a statement issued on Sunday by SP Yemisi Opalola, the police spokesperson.
“The dissolution is with immediate effect and all personnel attached to the squad are to report to the State Headquarters for redeployment.
“Investigations have commenced at the State’s Criminal Investigation Department over complaints of unprofessional conduct exhibited by personnel of the squad,’’ she stated.
According to Opalola, the disbandment would serve as a deterrent to other tactical squads. He added that the Command, under Olokode, would not tolerate or condone any act unbecoming of police officers.
Thereafter, Olokode enjoined Osun residents to rekindle their trust in the police, saying they are committed to giving the state improved services that will stand the test of time.
