Sanwo-Olu, deputy meet newly commissioned police officers of Lagos extraction

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on Tuesday received representatives of newly commissioned officers of the Nigeria Police Force who are Lagos indigenes.

The governor received the officers in the company of his deputy Obafemi Hamzat.

Mr Sanwo-Olu spoke about the meeting in an Instagram post. He wrote, “It was indeed a heartwarming moment for us as we received representatives of newly commissioned officers of Lagos extraction of the Nigeria Police Force. We are happy that these men and women who just graduated from the Police Academy made a choice to serve their country and keep us safe with their enlistment into the police.

“As fresh ambassadors of our great state, I reminded them that Lagos has always produced illustrious men and women who served diligently and with patriotism in the Police and other security organisations and they are not expected to do any less.”

Sanwo-Olu noted that former inspector general of police Musiliu Smith and Oba of Lagos Oba Rilwanu Akinolu who retired as assistant inspector general of police made great strides in the police as indigenes of Lagos.

The governor charged the officers to be diligent and commit themselves to serve with integrity and never engage in any unwholesome practice that can tarnish the image of their families and Lagos.
