“The Inspector-General of Police made it clear that Ore-Benin-Onitsha road should be an easy passage for travellers. We want our policemen to be on the road but we don’t want a situation whereby they will be a problem to the road users,” CP Oyediran said.

“This is the reason why we are on this road today. We have been able to put sanity into what is happening and we shall continue by the grace of God. Please tell others that we will not tolerate indiscipline. Anybody who notices anything untoward on this road should please contact us.”
