Gov Obaseki Pleads With Police To Resume Duty In Edo State
Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state has appealed to Johnson Kokumo, the state Commissioner of Police, to plead with the men of the police force to resume duty to secure the lives and properties of Edo state indigenes.
The governor made the appeal during a solidarity visit to the state command headquarters in Benin after the #EndSARS protest that led to the destruction of lives and property including the burning down of the police stations.
Obaseki noted that the absence of policemen on the on the roads could easily be interpreted by the hoodlums who hijacked the good intentions of the #EndSARS protests as weakness and cowardice on the part of the police.
“Edo State government will now proceed immediately to begin to rebuild your destroyed buildings. We have already ordered some patrol vehicles and we hope it will be delivered in the next few weeks. We will be responsible for the hospital bills of every officer who have been hurt in the last few weeks”, he said.
