The Ondo State Commissioner of Police,CP Salami Amidu Bolaji says Ondo Police Command will never police lawlessness in the State against laid-down policing rules.

 CP Salami while reacting to a video on the social media platform of his purported confrontation with the Deputy governor of Ondo State over some number of cars, said, first and foremost the video in circulation is an attempt to foment sentiment and misunderstanding in the State, as he asserted that it is only apparent that the Police under his policing architecture take  decisive responsibility when performing their legitimate functions as prescribed by law.

 CP Salami further said, he only came to the scene when his officers and men could not broker peace between the aides of the Governor and that of his Deputy over the number of cars the Deputy governor would drive out at the time.

 According to the CP,  it is only necessary that his presence at the scene as the Command's Commisioner of Police could calm frayed nerves.

He also said, having listened to the reason for the misunderstanding, advised both sides to come to terms, a condition they both agreed to.

 CP Salami who said he has never been a politician all through his life and would not want to be dragged into politics, affirmed that he is completely apolitical and as a police officer; his job in Ondo State is to protect the  lives and property of all citizens of the State.

 He therefore advised the good people of Ondo State that as the race to Ondo government house draws very close, politicians with interest in the race should learn to play the game by the dictate of its laws, and also to advise their supporters to shun any act capable of causing chaos or lawlessness in the State as he concluded, " though I vowed to police Ondo State with humility, I wil not allow the ego and sentiment of any individual in Ondo State dictate what form my policing style should take"
