Ekiti state police command has withdrawn its officers from Ikere Ekiti.

This followed the recent attacks on three police stations in the town by suspected hoodlums who hijacked the recent ENDSARS protests.

Visits to the three police stations in the town showed that there was no officer in all of them.

When contacted, spokesperson for the Ekiti state police command, Mr Sunday Abutu confirmed the withdrawal of services.

Mr Abutu said three police stations housing officers in the town had been set ablaze and also vandalised including cars parked at the premises.

He explained that residents of Ikere Ekiti had been told to call the police hotlines anytime they needed their services, especially during robbery.

In his reaction, the ogoga of Ikere Ekiti, Oba Adejimi Adu said withdrawal of services by the police was not a good development for the town.

Oba Adu noted that this would expose the people of Ikere Ekiti to criminal activities appealing to them to return.
