Mr. Adeyemi Ogunjemilusi, Bayelsa State Commissioner of Police, has declared that there would be no more police roadblocks in the state.

Ogunjemilusi announced this on Wednesday during the inauguration of the Eminent Persons Forum at the state command headquarters, Yenagoa.

The decision was in line with the directive of Ibrahim Idris, Inspector-General of Police, banning roadblocks across the country.

He said that the command under his leadership would not tolerate indiscriminate roadblocks in Bayelsa; he warned policemen to obey the order, as erring officers would be sanctioned appropriately.

Ogunjemilusi said, “Roadblock has been cancelled by the Inspector-General of Police. And I am here to say that, in

Bayelsa State also, roadblock has been cancelled.

“What is permitted is targeted stop-and-search aimed at specific crime or a sporadic one aimed at arresting some criminal elements based on information, not the usual blocking of the road, checking vehicles anyhow, no.

“I have just passed an instruction that any vehicle you stop, you must record it. You must write a report. What vehicle did you stop? What is the number (plate)? What is the colour? What is the name? Why did you stop it? When you stopped it, what did you discover?

“Now, every policeman on the road must come back every evening and make that record. If you are not able to do that, then it means you have (set up an) illegal roadblock and you will be sanctioned for that.” (Independent)
