In Edafe”s word: “The Commissioner of Police Delta State, CP Ari Muhammed Ali, FCIA, PSC+ is assuring members of the public, particularly residents of Okpanam community that they should go about their lawful business(es) without fear as the Command is not only able and willing, but also committed to the protection life and property in the State.
