BBNaija star, Laycon visits Ogun CP, pleads Against Brutality of Innocent youths
Hours after he was announce as Youth Ambassaor of Ogun state by the Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, the winner of the 5th edition of the
BBnaija TV reality show, Olamilekan Agbeleshebioba has pleaded with the state Commissioner of Police,
CP Edward Ajogun in his office to strengthen the relationship between the Force and the youth constituency in the state.
Laycon as popularly called, expressed concern over the issues of Police brutality in the country charging the officers
and men not to make themselves too fearful for the citizens to approach in times of need.
“The popular ‘Police is your Friend’ mantra is different from what many citizens experience in the hands of Police officers.
I usually get scared whenever I see policemen as a result of the unjust treatment I have experienced in the past
and it baffles me why I would be scared of those that are meant to protect me.”
“People should have confidence in the Police Force and not fear at the sight of them without wrongdoing.
Fear for men of the Nigeria Police Force is majorly from the brutality many have suffered over the years with little or no consequences.
But now, as the Youth Ambassador in Ogun State,
I hope to see this become a thing of the past while I give my support to the Force in whatever way it is requires”.
Responding, the Commissioner of Police assured the delegate that the Police Force does not condone acts of brutality by its officers,
adding that the Force had a special unit that investigates cases of Police brutality and takes necessary actions against officers found guilty.
“No case of brutality against an officer of the Force has been made without us investigating
and taking the necessary decision to punish an officer found guilty of it.
“The Force seriously frowns at cases of brutality and severely punishes eering officers.
