In preparation for Governor Dapo Abiodun’s second term swearing-in ceremony scheduled for Monday, the Ogun State Police Command has issued a stern warning against any attempt to incite chaos or disrupt the state’s peace.
Abimbola Oyeyemi, the Police spokesperson, announced in a statement that adequate security measures have been set up to ensure a smooth and incident-free inauguration ceremony.
Oyeyemi highlighted that the State’s Commissioner of Police, Olanrewaju Oladimeji, has placed all the command’s tactical units, Area Commanders, and Divisional Police Officers on high alert.
The objective is to preempt and swiftly counter any act of violence that could disrupt the ceremony in any part of the state.
Furthermore, the police have initiated a 24-hour surveillance patrol across the state to monitor and curb any potentially disruptive activities from miscreants.
Oyeyemi appealed to parents and guardians, urging them to caution their children and wards against being manipulated by anyone intending to cause havoc anywhere in the state.
He warned that any attempts to disrupt the peace would be met with resistance from the police and other security agencies.
The police vowed to maintain law and order, stating they would not permit anyone to plunge the state into turmoil regardless of their status.
Securing Peace for Abiodun’s Second Term Inauguration: A Challenge for Ogun State Police

Their warning against causing mayhem, while necessary, illustrates the gravity of their task.
While their preparedness, as communicated through the state’s police spokesperson, is commendable, the actual test will come during the ceremony.
The police’s ability to deliver their promise of a hitch-free event will be under scrutiny.
Furthermore, the police’s appeal to parents and guardians underscores the communal responsibility of maintaining peace and order.
It serves as a reminder that security is not just the duty of law enforcement agencies but also a collective effort that requires the participation of all members of society.

It emphasizes equality before the law, a cornerstone of a democratic society.
As Governor Dapo Abiodun steps into his second term, the Ogun State Police Command has a significant role in ensuring that the transition happens peacefully and orderly.
