The Commissioner of Police and Commandant, Nigeria Police College, Ikeja, CP Tunde Sobulor, is dead, reports the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

CP Sobulor died on Friday in Atlanta Georgia, United States of America, after a protracted illness.

The eldest son of the late Commissioner, Mr. Robert Sobulor, who confirmed the death, told NAN at the police that he got the news around midnight Nigerian time.

He said his sister, Laila, who was with their father in the U.S. called to inform him of his death while he was already sleeping in Nigeria.

Sobulor Jrn said his father would be buried in Atlanta Georgia after a family meeting currently going on.

“The vacuum my father’s death has created cannot be filled in the family and his profession.

“He was dedicated to the police profession and his family. He was an operational person.

“He usually says to me: think, when you think, you carry out the action.”

Speaking also with NAN, the immediate younger brother to late CP Sobulor, Alhaji Kamarudeen Shomide described him as a great loss to the family.

Shomide said the late commissioner loved his family and his profession, stressing that they would miss his brotherly love.

“He was so dear to us. I am talking to you now with heavy heart as a man. He died young at about 58 years.”

A nephew to the late commissioner, Folahan Sobulor said he would be remembered for his mentorship and teaching.

Folahan said they were together towards the end of the commissioner's life before he travelled to The U.S. for treatment.

“He has always be a fatherly figure to me. My dad is his immediate senior brother. He created a name that is like umbrella to us all.

“He was an extremely dedicated officer to his work. I cherished the moment where we have disagreement and later agreed.”

NAN observed that the Nigeria Police Flag at the police college, Ikeja, was flown at half-mast.

Some family members and friends were seen in different groups at his official residence discussing the development.

Late CP Sobulor was promoted to the rank of Commissioner of Police and posted to Ikeja Police College in 2014. (NAN)
