Leaders of Okere-Urhobo kingdom in Warri, have commended CSP Eyoh Anietie, 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.

For this reason, they called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, to effect the promotion, and pleaded that if Mr Anietie is promoted to his next rank of an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), he should be retained in his current division.

This, they said would avail him the opportunity of completing 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, urged the police authorities to elevate the status of Mr Anietie to ACP, based on his startling achievements unusual of policemen in this clime.

“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 that they could refer to as theirs which will avail policemen posted there 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 hard work 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.

Comrade Eboh, however, conjectured that after Mr Anietie is promoted, he should remain in the division to complete the building project he has started which, he said, was worth a million to the community.

In his remarks after inspecting the multi-million naira divisional headquarters, elated CP Mustapha congratulated the DPO for his vision and resourcefulness as well as his ability to mobilize 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’s 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 as new CP, stated.

Responding, CP Mustapha, who was astonished at the high standard of the facility he saw on the ground, promised to intimate the IGP on the need to personally inaugurate the project when it is finally completed, saying: “with what I’ve seen, it’s worth bringing the IGP to commission the project.

The police boss 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.”

TribuneOnline reports that through the unwaning leadership acumen of DPO Anietie, the division has moved from a decrepit bungalow to now boast of 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.
