Outgoing Edo CP tasks security agencies on proficiency
The newly-promoted and outgoing Commissioner of Police in Edo State, Abubakar DanMallam, has tasked security agencies on proficiency in tackling insecurity in the state.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), DanMallam gave the advice at the weekend in Benin during a send-forth ceremony organised for him by the state command. He said that Edo was a strategic state as it was a gateway to various states and geo-political zones in the country, saying that in view of this, criminals in the state are highly sophisticated, and therefore tasked security agencies as well as officers and men of the command to be alert to their responsibilities.
He also advised the officers and men of the Edo Police Command to maintain the already established legacies of an environment devoid of insecurity.
While attributing his successes to robust synergy with security agencies and police/public relationship, he sued for more support and co-operation.DanMallam, however, said that the major challenge on his assumption of office in the state was cultism, armed robbery and kidnapping, adding that these had been reduced to its barest minimum.
Earlier in his opening remarks, Commander, 4 Brigade and chairman of the occasion, Brig.-Gen. Greg Omorogbe, commended the leadership style of the outgoing CP.Omoregbe, who said that the CP’s promotion to an Assistant Inspector-General was an eloquent testimony of his hardwork and contributions to peace in Edo State.“I have no doubt that his comradeship and Espirit de Corps would be missed,” he said.
Also, Governor Godwin Obaseki in his remarks described the outgoing CP as “humility personified.”Obaseki, who was represented by Mrs. Julie Olatunji, Permanent Secretary, Cabinet Office, said that the outgoing CP was a man who knows his job and does not pay lip service to issues.“He contributed his wealth of knowledge to our security architecture and also the synergy among security agencies in the state today,” he said.DanMallam was among the 14 Commissioners of Police promoted to the rank of Assistant Inspector-General (AIG) in October and redeployed a fortnight ago.He is to return to Louis Edet House as the AIG in charge of SPU.
