THE Oyo State Police Command says it has arrested over 1,000 members of ‘One Million Boys’ and charged over 400 of them to court.
The State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Abiodun Odude, disclosed this on Monday while speaking at a town hall meeting entitled: ‘Public-Private Partnership in Security Funding: Introduction of Security Levy in Oyo State,’ organised by OYSSTF at the House of Chiefs, Parliament Building, Secretariat, Ibadan.
‘One Million Boys‘, is a notorious Ibadan cult group which has been giving residents sleepless nights in recent times.
Also, the Police chief lauded the Ajimobi-led administration for introducing OYSSTF and ‘Operation Burst’ , saying with this, the government has placed security issues on the front burner and made it the least crime infested state in Nigeria.
He maintained that security agencies have been trying their best with government’s support to nip crime and criminality in the bud, noting that security is a collective responsibility of all and sundry.
Odude said, “in the last one year, the police have arrested more than 1,000 members of ‘One Million Boys’ and we have charged over 400 of them to court”.
