The Police Public Relations Officer, Yemisi Opalola made this warning Friday in Osogbo.

When asked if political office holders are in the category, the police spokesperson said, “only the governor, the deputy governor and the speaker of the state assembly are allowed to cover. Any other person doing so commits an offence and we may likely meet with the governor to discuss this.”
