The Ondo State Police Command regrets the unfortunate incident leading to the death of a truck driver whose identity is not yet known today 2/12/2019.
The deceased was allegedly shot and killed by one of our men who was on duty with others at about 1pm at a point in Uso via Owo.
The command condemns this barbaric and gruesome murder in its entirety.
While we commiserate with the family of the deceased, we want to say that the action of this erring officer does not represent what the Nigerian police or the command stands for.
The Nigerian Police and by extension the Ondo State Command respects the sanctity of life and dignity of human persons as enshrined in the Nigerian constitution.
Consequently, the Commissioner of Police, Ondo State, has ordered a thorough investigation into the incident while the defaulting officer will be made to face the full wrath of the law.
Once again, we apologise profusely for any inconvenience or embarrassment this isolated action must have caused anyone.
PPRO, Ondo State.
