“We will also make sure that all culprits and those culpable are brought to the alter of justice. While we salute the level of professionalism the Osun state police Command have displayed as regard this case, we also want to sound a note of warning to Osun state commissioner of Police and the Nigeria Police Force as a whole to shy away being influenced by these unscrupulous elements and their association of local vampires. They must refuse to be intimidated by all intimidating factors, either internal or external.”
