Police shine in Somali, win award
The African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) has honoured 159 Nigerian Police officers on foreign mission in Somalia for exemplary service.
The officers, who are part of AMISOM’s Formed Police Unit (FPU), were awarded medals and certificates at a colourful ceremony presided over by Maj. Gen. Fidza Dludlu, the AMISOM Head of Mission Support.
Dludlu described the officers as true ambassadors of Nigeria and African Union, as the contingent excelled in its role of providing operational support to Somali Police Force (SPF).
He observed that the contingent accomplished its duties in total compliance and adherence to African Union core values, which include respect for diversity, teamwork, integrity, impartiality, efficiency and professionalism, among others.
