Condemning the action of the police towards Mrs. Mba on Sunday, he disclosed that Mba was not committed any offence than asking about where about of her son who has been tortured and detained in their custody illegally.

Reacting to the recent shooting of the State Correspondent of The Nation Newspapers- Mr. Toba Adedeji, Comrade Sulaiman maintained that CP Olokode (+2348033181456) did not deserve to be a Police boss and not to talk of being in the State before, during and after the forthcoming Governorship election in order to safe the lives of the innocent citizens, particularly, the voters from the hand of his men.
It would be recalled that the Divisional Police Officer(DPO) in charge of Dugbe Police Station, Osogbo, Mr. Oyegade lead the team of the Police Officers that shot a journalist and two(2) other protesters during a protest by the members of the State Chapter of the ruling All Progressives Congress( APC) after the party primaries in Osogbo, the State capital recently.
Sulaiman who is the Executive Chairman, Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ), described the State Police boss as an architect of Police unprofessionalism and blood thirsting Police Officer who were not fit to hold any sensitive position in the land, maintaining that the tenure of Olokode as Police Commissioner, was full of bad occurrences in the State.
CHRSJ Chief, promised that the Police boss would soon be dragged before the International Criminal Court(ICC) for genocide, adding that DPO Ige Adekunle, DPO Oyegade and their men would soon face the wrath of the law by bringing them to justice.
Sulaiman therefore, stated that his human rights organization would soon write the Police and other concerned authorities for disciplinary action against the erring Police officers.
