Omoni spoke while reacting to reports that Police officers in Oyigbo where the matter was reported are trying to compromise the incident.
The statement said contrary to claims, the Police Officers at the Oyigbo Area Command under the watch of Area Commander, ACP Rosemary Collins were professional and acted without any attempt to undermine the process, as deduced from the Statement of the Complainant made in the presence of the Parties.
