ONDO State Commissioner of Police, Undie Adie, has said policemen manning the state’s borders need Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to enable them carry out their function effectively.
Adie who spoke in Akure, while distributing over 2000 face masks to policemen across the state warned against abuse of citizens in an attempt to enforce COVID-19 lockdown.
The Ondo CP however vowed to deal with any police officers caught compromising the Federal Government directives on ban on inter-state movement.
Adie said the reports from citizens in border communities on activities of policemen at the borders were becoming worrisome.
Addressing Divisional Police Officers, whose stations are located in border communities and others drafted to ensure strict compliance with the Federal Government’s directive, the CP reminded the police officers that only workers on essential duties such as medical personnel, journalists and others are exempted.
