The Ogun State Commissioner of Police, Abiodun Alamutu, has mandated 24-hour patrols around public spaces, particularly worship centers, during and after the Easter celebration to ensure the safety of residents and visitors.

Alamutu directed area commanders, Divisional Police Officers, and Tactical Commanders to enhance security measures in their respective areas of jurisdiction to curb crime and criminality as Easter festivities peak.

In a statement issued by the spokesperson for the state police command, SP Omolola Odutola, Alamutu emphasized the importance of safeguarding locations such as Long Bridge, Bamboo, Four Square, Alapako, Onigari, Ogunmakin, Straightgate, worship centers, financial institutions, and other black spots across the state.
