FIVE officers of the Oyo State police command have been promoted to their next ranks, just as the Commissioner of Police in the state, Ngozi Onadeko, has awarded eight other officers for their outstanding performance.
Speaking during the decoration and presentation of awards to the officers at the police command headquarters, Eleyele, CP Onadeko said the idea. behind the recognition is to encourage those awarded to continue to do more.
She said the majority of the officers and men of the command have been performing excellently well, just as she added that the award would spur others to also work harder so that they would also be recognised.
Among those honoured are the Area Commander of Agodi, ACP Shittu Jimoh; commander, Monitoring Unit, CSP Olusola Aremu; DPO Agodi, CSP Afeez Oyekan; CSP Sade Bamigboye of State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) and Traffic Warden G1 Oludare Ogunnola.
While speaking with newsmen, CSP Aremu thanked the commissioner of police for the award, just as he said it would only make him continue to perform to the best of his ability.
Aremu was the Officer-in-Charge of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) in Oyo town before he was posted to the Ibadan unit as the Commander before its disbandment in 2020.
He led the rescue of the Chairman of Bond Chemical, Awe via Oyo town, Mr Omotoso, when he was kidnapped, and arrested the perpetrators.
He had led operatives to foil armed robberies in banks, on roads and in residents, while his teams also recovered numerous vehicles snatched at gun points and arrested the suspects.
While in Oyo town, he led his teams to a face-to-face encounter with ‘Godogodo’, a notorious armed robber, who was on his way from Share in Kwara State where his gang carried out a bank robbery operation.
He was also the one who arrested the kidnappers of the twin children of Sheikh Taofeek Akeugbagold, a popular Islamic cleric, rescued the children and recovered part of the ransom paid to the perpetrators.
At the event was the Special Adviser to the Oyo State Governor on Security, CP Fatai Owoseni (retd).
