You see, as you read this article and watch the video added, it is also okay to think of the role the community police play in keeping communities safe.
Indeed, it is becoming more obvious that criminals cannot run away after a crime without people of the community being able to identify at least one of the criminals.
Often, people say that the rat in the house brings the one without into ‘its home’ for a field day.
A few days ago, the Ogun State Police arrested a self-proclaimed native doctor, Babatunde Kolawole.
He was allegedly in possession of a fresh male corpse.
Police spokesperson, SP Omolola Odutola, announced the arrest on Sunday, stating that the Amotekun Corps had initially apprehended the suspect.
Kolawole said he was “trying to revive the deceased,” according to the police statement.
The statement read: “The Divisional Police Officer of Ota Police Station, CSP Saleh Dahiru, has received a report and taken into custody one Babatunde Kolawole.
“He was caught by members of the Amotekun Corps in Ado-Odo Ota with a fresh male human corpse.”
“Preliminary investigations have commenced, and although the suspect did not deny the incident, he claims to be a native doctor who was attempting to revive the deceased.
“However, it remains unclear how the suspect obtained the fresh corpse during the late hours of the night”.
Furthermore, police say more information on the matter will come in, as investigation proceeds.
