Bayelsa CP orders arrest of 2 policemen for mounting roadblocks

The Bayelsa State Police Commissioner, Adeyemi Ogunjemilusi has ordered the arrest of two police officers for flouting the IGP’s orders against roadblocks.

While confirming the arrest on Saturday, Ogunjemilusi said the arrested officers would be sanctioned.

He also said they could be demoted to serve as deterrent to other policemen.

He stated, “Roadblocks have been cancelled by the IGP and I am here to declare to you that in Bayelsa State, also, roadblocks have been cancelled.

“What is permitted is targeted stop-and-search aimed at specific crime or a sporadic one aimed at preempting some criminal elements based on information. It is not the usual blocking of the road and checking of vehicles anyhow.

“I have passed the instruction that any such vehicle stopped henceforth must be recorded. You must write a report about the vehicle, the number, colour and why it was stopped.”
