Umuahiaâ€”The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ogbonna Onovo, will soon commission 40 new patrol vehicles procured for the Abia Police Command by the state government.
Abia Police Commissioner, Mr. Jonathan Johnson, made the disclosure while taking delivery of brand new Hilux Patrol vans donated to the Command by the Chairman of Isial Ngwa South Local Government Area,Â Dr. Anthony Agbazuere.
A happy Jonathan noted that the gestures received from the government of the state and the support from Agbazuere would propel the command to do more in fighting crime.
â€œI will say that I am a very lucky man. I have seen love, I have seen commendations and I have seen encouragement since I came here. This is one thing that will normally propel us to do better,â€ Johnson said.
He called on other council chairmen in Abia to emulate Agbazuere, saying that if all the 17 council chairmen should provide vehicles to the police â€œit would go along way in providing equipment for the police to fight crime.â€
