The Ondo State Commissioner of Police, Mr Bolaji Salami says the Police Command under his him will never condone lawlessness in the State against laid-down policing rules.

Mr Salami while reacting to a video on the social media platform of his purported confrontation with the Deputy governor of Ondo State over some number of cars, said, first and foremost the video is an attempt to foment sentiment and misunderstanding in the State; as he asserted that it is only apparent that the Police under his supervision take decisive responsibility when performing their legitimate functions as prescribed by law.

The police boss said, he only came to the scene when his officers and men at the government house could not broker peace between the aides of the governor and that of the deputy governor over the number of cars the Deputy governor would drive out at the time.

According to the CP, it is only necessary that his presence at the scene as the Command’s Commisioner of Police could calm frayed nerves.

He also said, having listened to the reason for the misunderstanding, advised both sides to come to terms, a condition they both agreed.

CP Salami who said he has never been a politician all through his life and would not want to be dragged into politics affirmed that he is completely apolitical and as a police officer, his job is to protect lives and property of citizens of Ondo State.

He therefore advised the people of Ondo that as the race to the Alagbaka government house draws very close, politicians with interest in the race should learn to play their game within the dictate of its laws; and also advise their followers to shun any act capable of causing chaos or lawlessness in the State.
