The Chinese community in Nigeria has expressed confidence in the ability of officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force, to protect the interest of foreign investors in Lagos.

In a letter earlier addressed to the Inspector General of Police, the Chinese community in Lagos, had drawn the attention of the Police boss to what they described as the “sterling and outstanding performance” of Olasoji.

They said: “the Chinese business community first noticed the officer sometime in August 2016, when he held the office of the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Ikeja.

“The way he carried out his task diligently reveals to us his capability and diligence as an outstanding officer committed to his duties and his nation. To our amazement, he renovated the office premises and changed the entire environment making it more user-friendly, and a pleasant place to visit.”
The letter further read: “the knack for professional ethics, scrupulousness and determination coupled with hard work, have yielded desired result within the shortest time, he took over the mantle of leadership as the Commander Area ‘D’ Mushin. The uncommon expertise and zeal with which he carried out his duty diligently, resulted to the success recorded that spread all over the Internet.”

They added that, “If there is anything that gladdens the hearts of the Chinese more, is the fact that Olasoji holds community interface to carry his host community along and to give relevant information that will help individuals in their everyday lives. He is in tune with his host community and fosters good relationship with all and sundry thereby projecting a very positive image for the Nigeria Police Force.”
Speaking with journalists during the brief ceremony, which took place at the Area ‘D” Command headquarters, Zheng Wu, who is the Honorary Chairman, YMCA Entrepreneur, Lagos, said in view of the numerous achievements of ACP Olasoji, the Chinese Youths a after deliberations conferred on him the “Super Cop Award for Diligent Crime Fighting’.

Responding to the honour, Olasoji, who was visibly elated to see the group of Chinese in his office on a Sunday with such a rare award, dedicated the award to God Almighty, Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, and his immediate boss and Commissioner of Police, Lagos, Imohimi Edgal.

He said the Chinese had come to him with a letter and newspaper cuttings about the activities of his Area Command at Mushin, and informed him of the award. “Honestly, I feel elated for this recognition given to me by the Chinese Community,” he said.

Olasoji therefore advised them to continue to cooperate with the Divisional Police Officers in the areas of their business activities, and feel free to do their business in so far as they continue to be law abiding.
