Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris has named a new office complex in Lagos Police Mobile Force Headquarters, Squadron 20 (MOPOL 20), Ikeja, Lagos, after two gallant Mobile Police Officers, Chukwudi Iboko, and Sunday Agbo, who lost their lives during a robbery attack in  Owerri.

The IGP said Iboko and Agbo who died while repelling a robbery attack in one of the Zenith Bank branches in Owerri Imo State earlier in February this year were immortalized as a result of their selfless service in the Nigeria Police Force to inspire other officers to put more effort in the discharge of their duties.

Idris said the officers were honoured because they were patriotic in the discharge of their duties. “The officers showed serious commitment in delivering their duty while they were on duty and the Nigeria Police Force will never forget them.”

He also added that the mega office complex, which is situated at the Police Mobile Force Headquarters, Squadron 20, Ikeja GRA, Lagos, has been erected to enhance the smooth discharge of officers’ duties to gallantly combat crime to the barest minimum.

In reactions to the gesture, the families of the deceased officers expressed their gratitude to the IGP for remembering the fallen heroes who died while combating crime. They urged the IGP to help in facilitating the release of all financial benefits of the fallen officers.

Recall that the two policemen who have also been pronounced heroes by many Nigerians after the video of the shoot-out with the robbers went viral on the Internet have also been recommended for post-humus promotion by the Imo State Commissioner of Police, Chris Ezike, to encourage other officers in actively discharging their duty to serve and protect Nigerians.

Also, in attendance at the commissioning of the office complex were DIG: North-West Zone, Magairi Dikko, DIG Folusho Adebanjo; and Ag. Commissioner of Police, Lagos Police Command, CP Imohim Edgal, amongst several other senior officers.
