Don’t extort money from motorists, Ondo CP warns policemen

The Commissioner of Police in Ondo State, Oyeyemi Oyediran, has warned policemen posted to the various expressways in the state during the yuletide to be at alert.

He urged them against using their duty posts to extort money from motorists and other travellers.

Oyediran gave the warning on Sunday when he paid an unscheduled visit to a section of the Benin-Ore Expressway to supervise the activities of police personnel posted to approved beats on the highway.

According to him, the development is a result of the outcry of citizens on the traffic congestion they encounter on the expressway caused by the outrageous number of roadblocks, unnecessary delay of commuters and pedestrians on transit.

“All the policemen posted on duty on highways must be at alert and not use their duty posts as a means of extortion,” Oyediran warned.

He enjoined the police personnel to ward off criminals, promptly attend to emergencies, ease vehicular movement and protect all road users along the Benin-Ore axis.

The commissioner, who ensured free passage of vehicles on the highway during his visit, assured residents of Ondo State and all other road users of adequate security at all times.
