New Anambra Police Commissioner Reads Riot Act To Criminals

Commissioner of Police, Mr Garba Umar

A new Commissioner of Police, Mr Garba Umar, has been posted to the Anambra State Police Command.

Mr Umar took over from the former Commissioner, Mr. Sam Okaula who retired after attaining the retirement age of sixty on June Twentieth.

Men of the state police command mounted a guard of honour at the arrival of the new helmsman in the state.

Mr Umar later proceeded to be handed over by the former Commissioner, Mr Okaula in company of some high ranking officers of the state command.
While handing over, the erstwhile police boss in the state, called for total support by the citizens of the state for the new commissioner.

In his maiden speech, the new police Commissioner, Mr Umar read his riot act to criminals in the state noting that he will stop at nothing in ensuring that crime does not return to the state.

Mr Umar noted the successes made in the fight against crime and criminality in the state, and sought for support from all and sundry under his administration.

Mr. Umar was commissioner of police in Bauchi state before he was redeployed to Anambra state.

With great success already recorded in making Anambra a crime free state, expectations are high for the new police leadership in the state to consolidate on the wins made by his predecessors and the state government.
