Osun State Police Command has stated that personnel attached to government officials are not domestic servants for the politicians but to protect the lives and properties.
Patrick Kehinde Longe, the Commissioner of Police, made this known on Monday via a statement signed by the Command’s spokesperson, Yemisi Opalola.
According to the statement, “The Osun State Police Command is miffed with consternation the way these personalities use police orderlies attached to them for domestic duties such as carrying handbags, umbrellas, opening of gate, etc.
“We wish to state emphatically that the policemen attached to them are meant to protect their lives and property and not serve as domestic servants.
“The Command, therefore, warns police officers attached to these officials to stop carrying out or serving purposes other than protecting their principals from security threats, as such behaviour is highly unethical, unprofessional and would attract appropriate sanctions against erring such police personnel.
“These categories of Government officials are enjoined to employ the services of domestic staff/Personal Assistants to carry out such services.”
