Dan Bature, an Assistant Inspector-General (AIG) of Police in Charge of Zone 11 comprising Oyo, Osun and Ondo states, says any policeman checking vehicle particulars on the highways is on illegal duty.
He said that the duty of the police was not to check vehicle particulars but to ensure safer roads. Bature warned policemen against blocking high ways, saying police patrol vehicles were not supposed to be toll gates.
He said the IG of Police was committed to changing the negative image of the police and supporting the anticorruption war of the FG. Bature advised officers unable to key into the laudable initiatives of the IGP to resign from the force.
