Oyo State Police Commissioner, Muhammed Katsina on Monday declared war on political violence.
The state police boss also threatened to deal with any politician no matter how highly placed who organise a rally without informing the police to provide necessary security.
He stated this while parading 8 suspects arrested in connection with violence which erupted during an Accord party rally in which 3 persons were killed by the bullets of suspected APC thugs.
Recovered from the suspects are one pump action rifle, three live cartridges and three expended cartridges.
The CP disclosed that investigations have begun into the remote and immediate causes of the mayhem while promising to charge the arrested to court.
CP Katsina said the battle line has been drawn between the command and anyone out to disturb the peace in the state.
