“We will not fold our arms while this state is being thrown into confusion.

“The Federal government, the force headquarters, have made their stand clear about this revolution now protest. We want to make sure that Ogun State will not be used as a theatre of war. That is why we are having this show of force,” the police spokesperson said.

The Ogun State tate capital remain has, however, remained calm as residents go about their lawful businesses.
