The Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) in charge of operations in Anambra State, Aderemi Adeoye, has been promoted to the rank of a Commissioner of Police.
The promotion was made by the body in charge of promotion and disciplining of serving police officers, Police Service Commission (PSC).
The announcement of Adeoye as a Commissioner of Police was alongside the promotion of thirty nine other Deputy Commissioners of police, serving in various states of the federation.
A press release by the Head, Press and Public Relations Unit of Police Service commission on Friday, October 7th, 2022, Mr. Ikechukwu Ani, quoted the acting Chairman of the Commission as calling on the beneficiaries of the new ranks to rededicate themselves to the service of their fatherland.
The chairman charged them to bring into their new offices their varied experiences to help mitigate the ravaging security problems in the country especially now that the nation is going into another round of national elections.
Adeoye, a police officer known for numerous contributions to the force and the society, has severally been described as a fine police officer by members of the public.
Apart from being in charge of operations in Anambra State as a DCP, the newly promoted officer has held several positions which include, commander of Operation Restore Peace.
As commander of Operation Restore Peace, in the South East, an operation launched by the Inspector General of Police, he was able to work hard to tackle security concerns in the zone and particularly in Anambra State.
Speaking about Adeoye, Anambra State Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, said: “As Deputy Commissioner of Police, Adeoye used both kinetic and non-kinetic approaches to help tackle security challenges in Anambra State.
“He also worked as DCP Operations, and was appointed shortly before the governorship election, and you can attest to how smooth that election was, especially security-wise. He can be said to be an accomplished officer anytime.”
The PSC in the press release announcing the promotion of Adeoye and others on Friday said it will continue to ensure that Police promotions are not delayed and that the exercise will be just, fair, and based on seniority and availability of vacancies.
