Chinese Youths in Lagos have concluded plans to honour the Area Commander in-charge of D division in Mushin, Lagos state, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Akinbayo Olasoji in a ceremony billed on Sunday.
In a statement, the youths said they have observed the way the Area Commander carried out his tasks diligently leading to the reduction of crime in all areas he served. According to the youths, he has renovated the office premises and changed the entire environment making police stations more user- friendly and a pleasant place to visit.
“The knack for professional ethics and scrupulous determination coupled with hard work, have yielded desired results within the short time he took over the mantle of leadership as the Commander, Area D, Mushin.
The uncommon expertise and zeal he carried out his duties diligently resulted to the success recorded recently in troubled areas at Mushin.
“The raid at the notorious black spots at Akala, Olosha, Alakara, Idi-Araba and other areas in Mushin and the arrest of large number of drug addicts thereby crippling the criminal activities of drug barons and cartels in the area, is heart-warming.
The area has hitherto been a place where physical assault, bodily harm, murder, smashes and grab, intermittent house breaking and hemp smoking was the order of the day but ACP Olasoji had made it to become a safe place for all now.”
The event which will take place at the Area command headquarters will kick off by 1pm tomorrow.
Confirming the ceremony, ACP Olasoji said he will dedicate the honour to the Commissioner of Police; Imohimi Edgal whom he said has succeeded in piloting the affairs of policing in the state admirably and recorded many success since he assumed office.
