The Igbanke General Union (IGU), a town in Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State, has commended the Inspector-General of Police, Alhaji Adamu Mohammed, for siting a police divisional headquarters in Igbanke community.

President, Igbanke General Union (worldwide), Usiagwu Arthur Osaretin, made the commendation when he led a team of community leaders to donate a patrol vehicle to the new police division.

Usiagwu appealed to the police authorities to go further in its journey to adequately police the community, by approving four police out-posts for Ake, Oligie, Igbontor and Idumuodin, all within Igbanke. He said if approved, the out-posts would help in checking incidents of cultism, banditry and kidnapping.


“We want to express our appreciation to the Inspector-General of Police for upgrading the status of Igbanke police post to a divisional police headquarters. This singular gesture has in no small way placed Igbanke community among top towns in Nigeria. We are indeed delighted with the new development.

“With the advent of the police divisional headquarters, we now expect more police presence within the community to keep law and order in a community hitherto ravaged by cultism, banditry and kidnapping. My community is optimistic that the officers and men will settle down quickly to help reverse the ugly trend as soon as possible.

“The Igbanke General Union will work to assist the police in any way possible to ensure we keep Igbanke community safe. The leadership has just donated a patrol vehicle to the division for effective patrol in and around the community. We want to appeal to the IGP to help with the repair work of the facility in the police station. The station requires barracks for both officers and men.”
