A Surveillance Squad established by the Office of the Osun State Police Commissioner to fight crimes in the state have been disbanded.
The state police commissioner, Olawale Olokode, ordered immediate disbandment of the squard “because of unprofessional conducts of its members,” according to the police spokesperson in the state, Yemisi Opalola.
Opalola in a statement on Sunday, said: “The dissolution is with immediate effect and all personnel attached to the squad are to report to the State Headquarters for redeployment.
“Investigations have commenced at the State’s Criminal Investigation Department over complaints of unprofessional conduct exhibited by personnel of the squad.
“The disbandment would serve as deterrent to other tactical squads as the Command, under Olokode, would not tolerate or condone any act unbecoming of police officers.
“The CP Olokode, therefore, enjoined Osun State residents to rekindle their trust in the police as the we are committed to giving the state improved services that will stand the test of time.”
