The majority leader of Ogun State House of Assembly, Yinka Mafe, yesterday, said he has about 50 petitions against the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Sagamu, CSP John Mark. Mafe, representing Sagamu I state constituency, also vowed that the House will summon the Commissioner of Police, Abdulmajid Ali, and the command’s spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, on the alleged criminal cases against him.
The state House had last Tuesday asked the state Commissioner of Police to probe the alleged extortion of the people of Sagamu by the DPO. But the Police through its spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi said Mafe has no moral justification to raise such issues as he has about 15 criminal cases against him. Mafe, however urged the police to conclude investigations into the alleged criminal cases in order to charge him to court. “As I speak, we have over 50 petitions and these people are ready to come out, in fact the lawmaker from Sagamu constituency II was informing the Speaker that the DPO has a PoS machine with which he collects bribe and I am putting this on record quoting Hon Soyebo because he’s from Sagamu as myself and I think that is grievous.”
