NAN – Mr Muyiwa Adejobi, the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) in Ogun State, has warned youths to desist from extorting money from the people in the name of staging carnivals during the Yuletide.
Adejobi gave the warning in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday.
He said that forcing the public to give money by blocking roads was other mode of robbery.
“The people should not be forced, at any point in time, to give money for carnivals, but it should be something coming from their minds voluntarily,’’ he said.
Adejobi, however, advised the general public to be security conscious and report any movement by strange persons in their areas to the police during the Yuletide.
“We need to be security conscious so that the nation’s insecurity challenges can be collectively addressed by the government and the people,’’ he said.
He also urged the people to support the police and others agencies to tackle corruption in the country.
