Why we rejected suspects brought to us by Amotekun -Police

Published by The Nation on Tue, 12 Jan 2021

By Segun Showunmi, IbadanOyo State Police Command on Tuesday revealed why the Command rejected some suspects brought to its Mokola and Iyaganku Divisional detention facilities by the operatives of Western Nigerian Security Network, otherwise known as Amotekun, saying that this was due to differences in policies and Moduls Operandi guiding their operations compared to other security agencies.The Police noted that the news making the rounds about their refusal to admit the robbery suspects brought by Amotekun was obviously fake news to illustrate that the police is uncooperative towards jointly combating crime with the said body.A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer of the Command, Fadeyi Olugbenga explained that the Nigeria Police force as an organization is jurisdiction sensitive and structured in such a way that offences committed in a particular Area of Responsibility (AOR) cannot be treated in another, as this is done for efficiency and accountability sake.The Police also said that Some of the suspects arrested and brought to the station by other security operatives are usually brought in terrible health/bad conditions and not admissible for detention, leaving the Police in no other condition but the demand for the treatment of such suspect, that after which he/she can be returned for necessary actions.The statement maintained that the Command is committed towards partnering with sister agencies and local security outfits towards bringing the level of crime to the barest minimal in the State, calling on men of various security operatives within the State to desist from the treatment of suspects with antipathy, inflicting serious bodily damages that oftentimes results in death.READ ALSO:National security upheavals and AmotekunThe original sight of the robbery as gathered by the officers on duty as at the time of the case transfer and from the promulgated news is Iwo road area under the responsibility of Agodi Division. The investigation also revealed that no case of armed robbery has been reported in the Division or any other of its environ as at or prior to that time, this is a course to look into and to do so, the enforcement of jurisdictional policing must be observed.The Amotekun operatives had earlier visited Mokola Division where they were advised to the best of the knowledge of the receiving officers and with the information at their disposal that the Division with the AOR to best handle the case is Iyaganku Division, upon getting to Iyaganku Division, the officers at the receiving end after critically analyzing the story taking its origin into consideration did not reject the suspect but directed that the suspects be taking to Agodi Division, a directive that was disregarded which led to the misconception making the rounds.
