The Olufon of Ifon, Oba Moruf Magbagbeola, has said some policemen in his domain are in the habit of divulging privileged information to cult groups tormenting residents of the community.
The monarch said this in Osogbo on Monday, at a forum organised by the Police Community Relations Committee which had the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, the Commissioner of Police in Osun State, Mr. Kola Sodipo, and top traditional rulers in the state in attendance.
He said, “I want complaints about the activities of some policemen who.....divulge privileged information given to them by informants. These policemen are former cult members when in school and anytime people give out information about cultists to them, they would inform the criminals and this is putting the lives of these concerned informants at risks.
“This happened recently in Sagamu and also in my town. I want you to help us on this.”
The monarch appealed to the IGP to ensure that the police authorities carry out thorough security checks on those to be recruited into the police to prevent cultists and their sympathisers from infiltrating the Police Force.
Drop a comment....thanks!
