The Ondo state police command has deployed its officers to man the checkpoints abandoned by the military.
This followed the withdrawal of soldiers from all military checkpoints on major highways in the state.
The Police Public relations officer, PPRO, Funmi Odunlami disclosed this to ROVING REPORTERS on Thursday.
She said “After what happened, we have deployed our men to those axis because people have been apprehensive of probable breach of security in those areas and that is why we have to act now to allay fears of residents and motorists.”
She urged commuters and motorists to go about lawful businesses and report any extortion by any police officers to the command.
