Controversial Sagamu DPO Redeployed

The Ogun State Police Command on Tuesday redeployed the
embattled Divisional Police Officer (DPO) in charge of Sagamu, John Mark, to
the command’s headquarters, Eleweran, Abeokuta, and put in place a six-member
committee to investigate allegations of extortion against him.
The deployment of the officer was the fallout of a petition
and protest by a member of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Yinka Mafe, who
accused the DPO of extorting members of the public.
Mr. Mafe, the majority leader at the assembly, on Monday
organised a protest against the police officer in Sagamu, with some residents
storming major streets of the town clamouring for Mr. Mark’s removal.
In a statement Tuesday, the Ogun Police Command Public
Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi, said DPO Mark had been redeployed to allow
“smooth” investigations to be carried out.
