Police force has new spokesperson

21 August 2014, 21:33

Abuja - Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Suleiman Abba, has appointed Emmanuel Ojukwu as the new Force Public Relations Officer.

He replaces Frank Mba, who has been redeployed to Lagos State Command as an Area Commander.

Abayomi Shogunle, Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, disclosed the changes in a statement from Abuja.

"The new spokesman is stepping into a familiar terrain, having distinguished himself as the Force Public Relations Officer from December2008 to October 2010," the statement read.

Until his new assignment Ojukwu, was the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Criminal Investigations Department at Zone 7 Headquarters, Abuja.

In a brief handover ceremony  at the Force Public Relations Department,  the Former Public Relations Officer Frank Mba thanked the IGP for the new assignment given to him and urged the media and the public to extend maximum cooperation to the new spokesman.

Ojukwu promised to work to increase the tempo of good relationship between the Police and the public in line with the policy thrust of the Nigeria Police Force. He called on members of the public and the media to grant the same level of goodwill and cooperation necessary for his success in office.

The new Force PRO harped on the slogan, "The Police is your helper and friend."
