Ex-IGP had penchant for boosting policemen morale


 

From Juliana Taiwo-Obalonye, Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari has described former Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mustapha Balogun, as a man who had penchant for boosting the morale of officers and men in the Police Force, a quality he said has been acknowledged by those who served under him.
According to a statement by Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari noted that during his tenure as IGP, he did his utmost to ensure that the police performed its statutory responsibilities under a democratic dispensation.

The President condoled with family, friends and associates mourning the death of former IGP, Mustapha Balogun.

He said he also mourns with the Nigeria Police Force, an institution Balogun spent the better part of his life serving.

President Buhari said his thoughts are with the family, the government and people of Osun State, as well as colleagues and former colleagues of the deceased police chief.

He prayed for the peaceful repose of the soul of the departed.
