The police command in Oyo on Thursday embarked on a show of force in major areas of the state over an alleged invasion of armed bandits amid the proposed June 12 protests.

Briefing journalists at the end of the patrol, the Commissioner of Police, Ngozi Onadeko, said the exercise was to let the public be aware that their safety was the primary responsibility of the police.

There was a rumoured apprehension in the state that armed bandits had flooded it to cause chaos.

The police started the show of force from the command’s headquarters at Eleyele, through Egbeda, Monatan, Akinyele, Moniya, Beere, Agodi-Gate, Olodo, Iwo Road, among others.

Ms Onadeko said there was no truth in the rumour that bandits had invaded major towns, warning that unfounded rumours would not do anybody good in the society.

According to her, the police and other sister security agencies in the state are collaborating with local hunters and vigilance groups to protect lives and property.

Meanwhile, the Head of Akinyele Livestock Market, Muhammed Sugaba, said there was calm and no ethnic discrimination in the market.
