Dare Ogundare, the Commissioner of Police in Ekiti State, has resolved the dispute between okada operators in the state.
The KP met the warring parties soon after the Ewi of Ado Ekiti, Oba Adeyemo Adejogbe, met the leadership of the Okada riders. Some commercial motorcyclists in Ado-Ekiti have protested their leaders’ alleged abuse of power.
After listening to the differences between the association led by the state chairman, Comrade Kunle Ashaolu and representatives of the protesting members, the police commissioner charged both parties to give peace a chance and ensure that the current peaceful atmosphere in the state is maintained.
The Commissioner of Police requested them to get into the habit of presenting their complaints properly as per the prescribed rules and regulations instead of taking matters into their own hands.
In their separate remarks, both sides pledged to maintain peace and order.
Meanwhile, those caught with dangerous weapons will be charged in court accordingly.
