Breaking: Police Refute A Viral Video Alleging An Attack On Ogijo Station



VAM news has gathered that Lagos and Ogun police command have condemned a viral video alleging that there was an attack on Ogijo police station.


The Ogun State police command has debunked reports in a viral video alleging an attack on its facility in the Ogijo area.


In a statement by the command’s spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, it said the video being circulated was not of Ogijo Divisional Headquarters.


“The unfortunate incident did not happen in Ogun State. Ogijo Police Station is intact and not under any form of attack,” Oyeyemi said.


He said the video in circulation was a robbery incident that happened in Osun State where a bank and a police station were attacked by armed robbers.


“The command hereby advises members of the public to disregard the information that the incident happened in Ogijo, as such never happened anywhere in Ogun State,” he added.

According to the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, there was no attack on Ikorodu Police Station, Igbogbo, Lagos State or any of its formations.


“There is no Ogijo Police Station in the state command but in Ogun State, and the same station, Ogijo, was never attacked as speculated in the news. The video in circulation was a portion of the scene of the recent bank robbery attack in Ikire, Osun State,” he said.


The Lagos State Police Command, therefore, urged the public to dismiss the viral video as fake and mischievous, adding that the command remains committed to providing adequate security in Lagos State.
