In a statement Wednesday night, Force Public Relations Officer, Muyiwa Adejobi said his address was done in an unprofessional manner.

The spokesman said the officer was at the area to carry out a rescue operation led by an Assistant Commissioner of Police.

Adejobi maintained that he had no locus standi to address the press or persons, as such is the sole responsibility of the Commissioner of Police and the Police Public Relations Officer.
