    The Ogun State commissioner of police and the DPO of ogere police division should please get back up from the IG.

  2. Port Harcourt serial rapist/killer who raped and murdered his 8 years old cousin escaped from police custody . The entire city flared up and descended on the Nigerian police. IGP gave out an order that the criminal should be arrested. As If the police knew where he was quickly brought back not rearrested. It is happening again with Shodipe . Who can say that the Nigerian police is not one security agency of a kind?
