The Commissioner of Police in Ondo State, Oyeyemi Oyediran has urged motorists to drive carefully during this Yuletide, most especially, as 2021 is coming to an end.
Oyeyemi gave the advice on Wednesday while personally controlling traffic along Ajue -Ore-Lagos highway.
The Police boss said the action was borne out of concern he has for lives and properties of travelers who journey through the road on daily basis in assuring them adequate security along the axis.
It would be recalled that the commissioner on assumption of office, warned officers posted to expressways in the state during the Yuletide to stop extorting motorists.
Also, he warned police personnel against using.their duty posts to collect bribes from motorists and travellers when he paid an unscheduled visit to a section of the Benin-Ore Expressway to supervise the activities of police personnel posted to approved beats on the highway.
“All the policemen posted on duty on highways must be at alert and not use their duty posts as a means of extortion,” he said.
