Obaseki seeks for the return of Police in the state
Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Monday urged the state Commissioner of Police, Johnson Kokumo, to appeal to officers and men of his command to return to their duty post.
The governor made the appeal during a solidarity visit to the state command headquarters in Benin as he urged for their return to secure lives and property of citizens of the state.
Recall that the #EndSARS protest in the state led to the destruction of lives and property, including the burning down of police stations.
He said “The 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.”
As regards the escaped inmates, the governor made it known that they would be rearrested while the cases of those who stayed back would be reviewed.
