Ekiti State Police Command has stated that the protests that rocked the state during the agitation against the now disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) did not in any way force its operatives to abandon their duty posts in the state.

This was disclosed by the State Police Commissioner, Mobayo Babatunde on Saturday.

Speaking via telephone conversation with newsmen in Ado Ekiti, on Saturday, the CP, who spoke through the Command’s Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Sunday Abutu, assured the people of the state that police will protect them while urging them not to entertain any fear.

“We are fully on ground, we have not abandoned our duties in spite of the tensed atmosphere and killings of our police officers in some other states and burning of police stations here in Ekiti.

“I want to really salute policemen here in Ekiti for their gallantry. They were fully on ground throughout the EndSARS period, there was never a time they ran away from duties despite that palpable threat.

“Let me sound a note of warning to criminals that Ekiti remains a no-go-area for them. We are fully on ground and nothing will be spared to ensure that Ekiti is safe.

“If we are to appraise the situation now, we can boldly say that Ekiti is safe, no cause for alarm and our people, I mean the residents can go about their businesses without fear, because we are on ground to discharge our duties effectively.”
