The Osun Police Command on Sunday threatened to drag loyalists of Minister of Interior, Rauf Aregbesola to court over ‘fallacuous allegations.’

The loyalists under the The Osun Progressives (TOP) caucus of the All Progressives Congress(APC) demanded redeployment of Commissioner of Police Olawale Olokode over alleged connivance with the camp of Governor Adegboyega Oyetola to cause mayhem during their factional meetings.

But CP Olokode, at a briefing on Sunday, told reporters the allegations were lies and fallacies.

He noted that the Police command will never be an appendage of any political party, group or individuals noting their actions and activities have shown that police under his watch discharged their duties professionally.

Olokode stressed: “Although Aregbesola loyalists never carry the police along with their activities in the state like their meetings and State congress held outside Osogbo township stadium, we provided them security

“Osun State Police Command has not and will not be an instrument of any political party as we remain independent and work according to the rules and regulations guiding the Nigerian Police Force.

“I see the petition as a deliberate attempt to malign my name and bring disrepute to the command under me and it is unfortunate. I, therefore, wish to say that, if this does not stop, I and the command will not hesitate to take legal action against all form of lies and unfounded allegations from any corner.”
