Ebunoluwarotimi Adelesi, the newly appointed Kwara State Commissioner of Police, has reminded the state’s commercial okada and tricycle operators that the prohibition on their operating during the hours of 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. remains in effect.
The police commissioner reminded the unions of the current law that the state government had issued to streamline their operations at the time in his remarks following a meeting with the organizations of both groups at the police headquarters in Ilorin.
She reaffirmed her commitment to upholding the law strictly and gave the union leaders the go-ahead to inform the membership that the command is prepared to begin upholding the law and pursuing any members who are found to be in violation.
According to Ebunoluwarotimi, the command’s spokesman SP Okasanmi Ajayi issued a statement in Ilorin on Saturday night in which he issued a further warning to the state’s criminal elements to renounce their bad deeds or face serious repercussions.
She urged law-abiding residents to conduct their lawful business without being concerned about being intimidated by offenders or law enforcement officials.
No effort would be spared, according to the police commissioner, to ensure that crimes and criminality are a thing of the past in Kwara State and that lawbreakers will not be allowed to operate as normal there.
