OYO state commissioner of Police, Tanbuwa Yabo-Mohammed today said the Police was yet to receive an order lifting ban on the activities of the National Union of Road Transport Workers.
This is despite the claim by Deputy Governor of the state, Adeyemo Alake that the decision was taken after the state security council meeting.
Consequently, he maintained that the two factional leaders of the union, Alhaji Abdul Lateef Akinsola a.k.a.Tokyo and Mr Lamidi Mukaila a.k.a Auxiliary are still being wanted.
Lateef Akinsola a.k.a Tokyo attended the first year anniversary of Governor Abiola Ajimobi interfaith prayer which lasted about four hours in the presence of the police.
The state Commissioner of Police Tanbuwa Yabo Muhammed, while addressing newsmen in Ibadan, said that the order declaring the two union leaders wanted was still in force.
Muhammed who spoke through his deputy, Clement Adoda, said that with the order by the state government lifting the ban, the command would ensure that the peace being enjoyed by the people of the state in the last one year was sustained.
He said that if an offense was committed, the person or persons involved must be made to answer queries.
He said that the command would invite the management of the union in the state on the need to maintain and sustain the current peace.
According to him, before the state government decided to lift the ban on the union activities, members must have promised to be of good behavior.
He said that the authority would ensure that they comply with some laid down rules and regulations.
He assured that the lifting of the ban on the union would not create or lead to another round of crisis in the state.
