The newly deployed Commissioner of Police in Osun state, Julius Alawari Okoro has arrived the state and resumed duty on Monday.


The former Commissioner of Police in the state, Olawale Olokode has been redeployed to Provost Mashal office, Force Headquarters, Abuja.


There are insinuations that Olokode was replaced due to the continuous demand for his removal over incompetence and reoccurring cases of police brutality in the state.

According to a statement issued by the State Command Spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola on Monday, Olokode was redeployed to avoid any kind of speculation that the sitting CP is aligning with any political party towards the forthcoming governorship election.


“The CP has arrived the State on 3rd July, 2022 and resumed duty/office today 4th July, 2022 following the redeployment of CP Olawale T. Olokode psc, to Provost Mashal office, Force Headquarters, Abuja.


“The CP Election is soliciting for the cooperation of all and sundry, especially during this electioneering period while enjoining the good people of the State to be law abiding and go about with their legitimate businesses without entertaining fear of insecurity.


“Necessary security measures to forestall any likely breakdown of law and order has been put in place,” the statement read.


Also, a statement by the Force PRO FHQ Abuja, Muyiwa Adejobi on Tuesday indicated that Olokode will return to the state after the governorship election.


“CP Olawale Olokode was just temporarily moved to the Force Headquarters pending the conclusion of the guber election when he would return to the State. This is contrary to the misinformation making the rounds.
