According to the police spokesman, Commissioner of Police, Tuesday Assayomo, swift dispatch of the Command’s Tactical Units and other conventional policemen, together with the professional manner in which the issue was handled, ultimately restored calm in the affected districts.

The Commissioner of Police, who expressed his concern with the rate at which some transport operators in the State were prone to lawlessness, asked the leaders of all transport unions in the State to call their members to order.

Despite the fact that no one was hurt in the altercation, the police commissioner stated that the individuals arrested will be charged in court once the investigation was completed.

Meanwhile, the CP has stationed teams of officers in the area to monitor and apprehend anyone seen promoting any act of disorder, while residents are encouraged to go about their normal business without fear of harassment or intimidation.
