The Commissioner of Police in Osun State, Mr. Fimihan Adeoye, has warned herdsmen and others bearing illegal arms in any part of the state to desist from doing so or be ready to face the consequences of violating the law.

 The CP gave the warning in Osogbo on Wednesday during an interview with journalists when he visited the Correspondent Chapel of the Nigeria Union of Journalists, Osun State Council.

 He said the police would prosecute anybody that violated the law guiding arms-bearing, irrespective of the ethnicity and religious belief of the violators.

 Adeoye said, “We held a meeting with the herdsmen and farmers recently and we made them to believe they should be tolerant of one another. There is no way two or three persons will live together and there will not be dispute but disputes must be well resolved whenever it occurs.

 “We have committees at the state level and at local government level and the committees are working well. That is why there is no major crisis about herdsmen/farmers here in the state.

 “On arms-bearing, the law is there. If we see anybody bearing arms illegally, whether a herdsman or not, such a person will be arrested and charged to court. We all must obey the law.”

 The CP also urged the people of Asipa and Ipetumodu to sustain the current peace in the area in their own interest.

 He stated that although there was a murder case in the area, the murder had yet to be linked with the boundary crisis between the two communities.

 He said that to ensure peace in the two towns, the police were monitoring situations and movements and holding talks with the leaders to prevent recurrence of any form of crisis.

 Adeoye said the police had not closed the investigation into the case of the two students of the Osun State University, Samuel Eke and Robert Akinduro, who went missing since September 5, 2016, adding that he believed they were still alive.

 He said, “We have not closed investigation into the case. Although the case has been charged to court, we are still working on it. We believe the two students are still alive because we have not seen their dead bodies and until they are missing for over seven years, we cannot say they are dead.

 “We believe that one day, they will walk back to us alive and well. We need useful information from anybody, who can assist. The police need the people to succeed not only in the case but to ensure crime prevention generally.”

 The Osun State CP also said the police from Oyo, Osun, Ekiti and Ondo states were working to ensure that the expressway from Ibadan to Akure was safe for motorists.

 The Chairman of the chapel, Mr. Hameed Oyegbade, lauded the CP for his approach to crime fighting which he said was making the public to change their perception about the police.
