The Ogun State Police Command has cautioned against reported attempts by an “unrecognised” motorcycle union(s) in the state to cause pandemonium, declaring that the full weight of the law would be applied on recalcitrants.

The command spoke against what it termed a “clandestine move by some disgruntled elements to infiltrate motorcycle unions and cause breach of public peace”, warning that anyone or group caught would be decisively dealt with.

The state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, in a press release, said a group claiming to be a faction of one of the legally recognised motorcycle unions in the state has no legal backing

Oyeyemi listed the bodies authorised by law, having passed through legislative procedures and, as such, legally recognised to operate in the state as Amalgamated Commercial Motorcycle Owners and Riders Association Of Nigeria (ACOMORAN), Articulated Motorcycle Riders Association Of Nigeria (AMORAN) as well as Riders and Owners of Motorcycles Organisation (ROMO).

“Anybody or group claiming to be a faction of any of the above-mentioned unions, to cause pandemonium in the state will face the full weight of the law”.

The command reiterated its commitment to maintaining peace and order, as well as protecting lives and property of the citizenry, adding that, “As an organisation saddled with the responsibility of maintaining law and order, we will not fold our arms while some faceless groups will be making life difficult for the good people of the state.

“The command, therefore, wishes to assure the good people of Ogun State of adequate security at all times while going about their lawful businesses”, the statement added
