Leaders of Okere-Urhobo kingdom in Warri, have called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, to effect the promotion of CSP EyohAnietie, the District Police Officer (DPO) of B’ Division, Warri Area Command, Delta State, for his vision, resourcefulness and gallantry in mitigating crime in the volatile area.

They quickly added that after their prayer is granted, Mr Anietie should be retained in his current division to complete the multi-million naira building project he has started as well as consolidate on the restoration of permanent peace and security in the city.

Speaking when the Delta State Commissioner of Police (CP), Muhammad Mustapha visited the division on Wednesday in company of the Warri Area Commander, Muhammad Shaba, Chairman of Otor-Orere Improvement Union, Okere-Urhobo Kingdom, Warri, Chief Bright Okumagba, described the officer as an unusual cop.

“I’m recommending that he should be promoted, but on the condition that he would not be transferred until he’s through with the project he has started.

“Besides, that’s still a lot to be done in terms of entrenching peace and we have confidence in him and he’s managed the crisis situation here very well and we’re recommending that he should be promoted. That’s the reward of a working police officer,” he enthused.

Chief Okumagba said people in the area are pleased with the Akwa-Ibom-born DPO because he’s building a 21st century police station which would avail policemen to have modern facilities to work with.

A youth leader and President of Okere-Urhobo Development Movement, Comrade Cyril Eboh, also reiterated that Mr Anietie’s hardwork and professional excellence should be rewarded with a deserved promotion to ACP.

“He deserves it, because besides ridding the area of crime and criminality, he met a two-bedroom flat as a police station, but singlehandedly fenced it and then began to put up this gigantic building rated as the best divisional police headquarters in West Africa at completion.

“And in his normal police job, I’ll score him 99 per cent because we all knew how Warri city was before he came. He’s a dogged and seasoned police officer of the 21st century and he’s done immensely well,” the youth leader noted.

In his remarks after inspecting the multi-million naira divisional headquarters, the elated CP Mustapha congratulated the DPO for his vision and resourcefulness as well as his ability to mobilise resources to drive his dreams.

“For someone who was to spend just six or seven months in a station to come up with such a gigantic project is commendable.

“It shows he came here with all his heart and he is an example for all others to emulate. His efforts are very impressive and I congratulate the DPO,” overwhelmed CP, who just resumed duty recently at Asaba, stated.

Responding, CP Mustapha, who was astonished at the high standard of the facility he saw on ground, promised to intimate the IGP on the need to personally inaugurate the project on completion.

He enjoined other police officers to always take their postings or deployment as an avenue to add value and “never leave a place the way they met it.”

Nigerian Tribune reports that through the uncommon leadership acumen of DPO Anietie, the division has moved from a decrepit bungalow to a storey quarter-guard (sentry-box), two massive structures, an Officers Mess and an expansive staff office, nearing completion, but already partly in use.

Inside the ‘B’ Division cell are already housing inmates in the yet-to-be completed office building and the inmates have the pleasure of their own toilet and shower – a convenience missing in most Nigerian prisons.

Besides, the ultramodern police mess has close circuit cameras (CCTV) mounted at strategic points to monitor movements in and around the premises and funding for the infrastructures under DPO Eyoh, who assumed office in May 2015, is mainly emanating from donations from the civil populace in the jurisdiction in kind and cash.
