The Commander of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Saheed Olayinka Egbeyemi, a Chief Superintendent of Police, has debunked the falsehood being peddled against him in relation to a demolished church in Agege, reports The Gazelle News.com.
This medium learnt that one Primate Ojo Ajiboye, Pastor of the Disciples Mission of Christ Church of the 27, Abiodun Sadiku Street, Dopemu, a suburb of Agege, has been spreading false allegations against the RRS Commander alleging that he was behind the demolition.
Reacting, CSP Egbeyemi in a statement, washed his hands clean of the allegation.
According to him, he has no interest in the matter because, “it is incontrovertible that matters of acquisition, demolition and or taken over of possession are all subject to interpretation and declarations of courts of competent jurisdiction, which further distances the Commander or the RRS from the acclaimed action”.
Egbeyemi stated that while he was being wrongly and maliciously accused, the vehicle and operatives involved in the said operation clearly vindicated his position on the matter.
“The RRS Commander since assuming office, has been busy bursting blackspots and communities prone to crimes, which include: Agege, Ikorodu, the Islands, Somolu, Bariga and environs, in a show of force and advocacies to rid Lagos of all forms of criminality and criminal tendencies,” the statement added.
Egbeyemi stated that he remained committed and steadfast to the cause to make Lagos a safer place for all.
He called on peddlers of unsubstantiated narratives to desist from casting aspersions on people rather they should exploit all legitimate means to secure justice where appropriate.
