The Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP Ibrahim Idris, on Thursday deployed a Tactical Operation Unit, comprising the Police Mobile Force, the Counter-Terrorism Unit with the back-up of an Air Surveillance Team to flush out vandals and other criminal elements operating in Arepo and Ibafor areas of Ogun State.

Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Don Awunah, announced this in a statement issued Friday in Abuja.

“IGP Ibrahim Idris said the deployment of the Unit to Arepo/Ibafor is to ensure that normalcy returns to the areas in record time,” DCP Don Awunah said.

“The IGP also said the Nigeria Police Force will not watch any criminal group or groups take the law into their hands, he therefore authorised the Unit to deal decisively with anyone who constitutes himself an enemy of the State, while asking law-abiding citizens of the area to return home and go about their normal businesses,” he added.

News Express reports that Arepo and Ibafor have for sometimes now been in the news due to menace of miscreants.
