The Ogun State Government yesterday announced that joint security patrol teams have been deployed to ensure law and order as well as to secure lives and property across the state.

The state Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, who stated this on his verified tweeter handle, urged the people to go about their lawful daily activities without fear of attack from security agents or any other quarter whatsoever.

He said security agents had been given specific instructions to maintain law and order, ensuring that law-abiding citizens who conduct themselves in orderly manners have nothing to fear, especially of attacks from some elements that had hijacked the hitherto peaceful protests.

“No protester involved in peaceful demonstrations would be harassed by any security agent. In fact, the agents have been instructed to provide adequate security for these peaceful protesters from unscrupulous elements who may want to turn the rallies into violence,” the governor tweeted.

He enjoined the people of the state to go about their lawful activities and avoid harassing fellow citizens by disrupting free vehicular and pedestrian movements as well as vandalising public and private properties.
