The Police Service Commission (PSC) reaffirmed its commitment to not only penalizing officers found guilty of misconduct but also acknowledging and motivating those who display extraordinary courage in the battle against terrorism, banditry, and other criminal activities across the nation.

This was contained in a recent recent released issued by the Commission’s Head of Press and Public Relations, Ikechukwu Ani.

According to the state, the retired Inspector General of Police and Chairman of the Commission, Solomon Arase had previously emphasized the importance of consequences for wrongdoing and rewards for exceptional conduct upon assuming his role.

The Commission praised the Inspector General of Police for the notable achievements made by the Rivers State Command, particularly in curbing the activities of a notorious gangster that had been causing havoc in the state.

The recent crackdown on a criminal gang operating in the Isiodu Forest along the Emohua axis of the East/West road, responsible for the murder of a former Federal Commissioner of the National Population Commission and the hijacking of two buses transporting National Youth Service Corps Members heading to Ondo State, was particularly applauded.

The Commission recognized this resurgence of strength and capability in providing adequate security for lives and properties as a welcome development, given the ongoing battle against banditry and terrorism in the nation.

Arase stated that the Commission would always appreciate police officers who stand out in the performance of their duties, demonstrating bravery to ensure the eradication of terror attacks in Nigeria. He specifically commended the officers of the Rivers State Command who spent several days in the forest, tirelessly setting up ambushes for the deadly gang, assuring them that their efforts would not go unnoticed.

Furthermore, the Commission acknowledged the exemplary conduct of Police Constable Nura Mande, who found and promptly returned $800 in basic traveling allowance belonging to a Katsina pilgrim. Such integrity and honesty were praised by the Commission Chairman.

He also remarked that Nigeria is already experiencing a positive shift in policing and pledged to sustain this momentum. He urged all officers and personnel of the Force to continue giving their best, assuring them that their dedication would be duly recognized and appreciated.
