A total of 259 people have been liberated from another detention facility uncovered by the Oyo State Police Command in Ibadan, the state capital, and handed over to the government. Among those rescued were 34 females, 10 children and an infant.

Operators of the facility, located at the Olore area along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway at Ojoo, claim it is a correctional centre for delinquents. However, the Police Commissioner, Oyo State Command, Shina Olukolu, who led a team from his command along with state government officials, frowned at the deplorable condition of some of the people held at the centre, and promised to bring the perpetrators to book.

The police boss said he and his men stormed the centre after a young man informed a divisional police officer (DPO) under his command of its existence. He said the young man who tipped the police off told the DPO that the centre was being run by someone who claimed to have the powers to be able to change the anti-social behaviours of youngsters and others.
