Christopher Orji of the Sun Newspaper literarily hushed Lagos for the sake of award winning policeman, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari.
Chris who stood in for members of crime reporting guild, having made the city of Lagos keep quiet for as long as his speech lasted, poured an unprecedented amount of encomium on Kyari.
The reporter of over twenty years’ experience said that it was Abba that transformed Lagos into a near crime free state.
He must have made the super cop, who looked unperturbed by praise, blush severally.
The guild spokesman at the event recalled instances where Abba had trace suspects to as far as Nigeria’s neighbouring countries.
Chris mentioned the case of a notorious armed robber and kingpin of a deadly gang that terrorized Lagos for over fourteen years.
Former governor of Lagos State, Fashola and Police top-shot, Abba Kyari.
“It was Alhaji Abba Kyari that put an end to that guy’s adventures after many years that the police without him couldn’t apprehend.
Abba is a cop that would tell you want he would do, to get a criminal before the law, and that he would definitely do. We don’t know how he does it but for sure we know he does it at last, “Chris said.
He reminded Abba that the government of Lagos state and its governor Akinwumi Ambode are always ready to welcome in back to Lagos.
Abba Kyari was the only recipient with two awards: Excellence in Security Service, and Outstanding Young Efficient Security Officer of the Year.
Kyari was the brain behind the recent arrest of five members of the notorious gang of kidnappers and robbers that had turned Ikorodu and its environment topsy-turvy.
The gang was nabbed by a team supervised by Kyari while they were about to rob five banks in Ikorodu and Lekki, in Lagos.
