Crime Reporters Association of Nigeria, (CRAN) has congratulated Acting Assistant Inspector General of Police , Sylvester Alabi , Commissioners of Police: Ari Mohammed Ali and Frank Mba for their promotion to the rank of Assistant Inspector General of Police by the Police Service Commission.
CRAN also joined well wishers to felicitate with the Commander, Intelligence Response Team, IRT, DCP Tunji Disu, on his elevation to the rank of Commissioner of Police.
A statement by the secretary of the association, Niran Odufayo read: “Having followed the trajectory of these fine senior police officers as an association, their inclusion in the list of officers promoted , as announced by the Police Service Commission, could not have come at a better time than now, when their professionalism and expertise are needed to fill the vacant positions orchestrated by the recent retirement of some senior police officers.
AIG Alabi has over the years demonstrated a rare professionalism and dedication to the Nigeria Police Force .
For the Delta State Police Commissioner, CP Ali, now AIG, his operational maneuvers brought the reign of various robbery and kidnap gangs to an end , with the arrest of hundreds of suspects and recovery of several arms ,ammunition and other exhibits to show for his operational dexterity.
In the same vein, the antecedents of the former Force spokesman, Frank Mba , who was recently deployed to the Ogun State Police Command as the Commissioner of Police , are also there to speak for him. His feats in less than two months of his stay in Ogun are startlingly beyond expectations.
Though the promotion of the Commander IRT, CP Disu, is long overdue, it is imperative to note that this erudite , operational and sagacious cop has never failed to police with a human face .
These attributes have not only enhanced the team’s intelligence gathering, it has also helped to project the Nigeria Police in a positive light.
To whom much is given, much is expected, thus, CRAN hereby urges these senior officers to see their elevation to the next ranks as a call for more professionalism and commitment towards aligning the paths of their subordinates for democratic values, human rights and the rule of law.
