Oyo State Police Command has raised concerned over the incessant of fire incidents in the state.

The command, according to a press statement issued by the state police public relations officer, SP Adewale Osifeso stated that Oyo State Police Command in it’s efforts towards protecting lives and property wishes to intimate residents of the state about its growing concerns for reported fire incidents in the Command during this dry season.

In furtherance of the above, residents are advised to adopt the highest level of caution whenever dealing with combustible and other highly flammable objects.

More disturbing is the rate of negligence exhibited by individuals who store jerricans of fuel at places of residents/shops and even make calls around active fuel pumps and gas cookers.

Also, bush burning and incineration of refuse at this period must never be left unsupervised to avoid unnecessary escalation of wild fire.

Consequent on the above and in a bid to maintain its proactive stance, the Oyo State Police Command in partnership with other sister services particularly the Fire Service would embark on continuous media sensitization campaigns and operational drills to keep residents in check.

As the saying goes, “If you see something, say something and the Police would do something”.

In case of emergency, the Command can always be reached through these emergency control room numbers: 07055495413 and 08081768614 with 615 (toll free) for the Oyo State Security Trust Fund.
