PRESS RELEASE
NON-KINETIC APPROACH TO INTERNAL SECURITY NETWORK: IGP APPROVES CSP OKUWOBI’s APPOINTMENT AS NEW POCACOV NATIONAL COORDINATOR, APPROVES COORDINATORS FOR GEOPOLITICAL ZONES

Charges New Head to Explore Crime Prevention Strategies, Engage Relevant Stakeholders to Consolidate IGP’s Vision of People Friendly Policing

The Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, Ph.D., NPM, has approved the appointment of Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Olabisi Okuwobi as the new National Coordinator for the Police Campaign Against Cultism and Other Vices (POCACOV), and appointment of Coordinators for the six Geopolitical zones across the country for effectiveness which will surely enhance non-kinetic approach to addressing common security challenges in the country. The decision, which forms part of a broader organizational restructuring, aims to bolster the campaign’s effectiveness in crime prevention through developmental initiatives and human relations.

CSP Okuwobi boasts a rich academic background, holding a Master of Arts in Peace and Conflict Studies from the University of Ibadan. She is actively engaged with revered professional bodies such as the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), Nigerian Institute of Public Relations (NIPR) and the International Public Relations Association (IPRA). With over two decades of experience within the Nigeria Police Force, including a notable tenure as a Police Information Officer with the United Nations Missions in Liberia, Police Public Relations Officer for Delta, Benue, and Oyo States, Okuwobi has demonstrated versatility across various policing domains.

Acknowledged for her exceptional contributions, Okuwobi has received numerous awards and accolades throughout her career including the UN Award of Commendation for Outstanding Performance, the Red Cross Award of Honour, and Legislative Award for Outstanding Performance amongst others. Her prowess in crime fighting and innovative leadership has earned her widespread recognition and admiration.

Given her distinguished career and expertise in law enforcement and public relations, CSP Okuwobi is well-equipped to lead POCACOV into its next phase. In her role as National Coordinator, she will spearhead the implementation of targeted strategies to combat cultism, misuse, and abuse of drugs, crime, and social vices through preventive measures. Emphasizing proactive community engagement, Okuwobi will focus on initiatives within educational institutions, sports, entertainment industry, digital media circles, and youth development to foster positive police-community relations and trust-building mechanisms for the NPF.

The Inspector General of Police, therefore, urges Okuwobi to explore innovative crime prevention strategies and engage a diverse range of stakeholders, including community leaders, educational institutions, youth organizations and partners, foreign and domestic, who have been supporting the vision of the campaign over the years. By cultivating partnerships and facilitating dialogue, POCACOV, under Okuwobi’s stewardship, will advance the vision of a people-friendly Police Force, ensuring a safer environment for all Nigerians.

Chief Mike Ahamba

If integrity and nobility were a person’s name, it would be Chief Mike Ahamba – a thoroughbred intellectual of the highest order whose integrity permeates everything with nobility as its anchor.

Some time ago, he informed me — only a few people know this, that Mike Ahamba has been President Muhammad Buhari’s personal lawyer for over two decades and a member of his political inner circle.

He has led the legal team in all the president’s electoral cases, up to the Supreme Court.
However, in 2015, Dee Ahamba pursued a different political path, distinct from his friend’s.

Though their personal relationship remained cordial, they remained on different political sides through out the President’s 8 years tenure, as Dee Ahamba refused to compromise his integrity by supporting a presidency that conflicted with his political beliefs at the time.

Indeed, it was in Dee Ahamba the saying of my mentor and personal idol, Prof. Chinua Achebe came to be a reality — ‘One of the truest tests of integrity is its blunt refusal to be compromised’.

Today, on his birthday, we salute his courage in maintaining his impeccable integrity and standing up for what he considers right.

We wish him good health, longevity, and the courage to continue upholding his values.

Happy birthday, sir!

Ambrose Nwaogwugwu.

Nigeria Police Service Commission (PSC) on Wednesday urged President Bola Tinubu to promptly dismiss the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun, accusing him of undermining the police recruitment process.

The PSC also refuted allegations of corruption leveled against it.

During a press briefing in Abuja, Adoyi Adoyi, Chairman of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) and Joint Union Congress of the PSC, expressed discontent over what he termed as false accusations against the Commission.

Over the weekend, the IGP, through a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, claimed that the recruitment process was riddled with irregularities and corruption.

Adoyi countered these claims, revealing that there was reliable information suggesting that elements within the police force had attempted to insert over 1,000 names into the recruitment list clandestinely.

“This action undermines the integrity of the recruitment process and the credibility of the police force,” Adoyi stated, urging the President to act swiftly to maintain the integrity of the nation’s police recruitment.

It was the Middleton’s first public appearance since their daughter’s cancer announcement.

Just days after making a radiant return at this year’s Trooping the Colour, Kate Middleton was notably absent as her parents, Prince William, and a number of other key royals made an appearance at the Royal Ascot. On Wednesday, the Prince of Wales joined Queen Camila, Princess Eugenie, Princess Beatrice, and Zara and Mike Tindall at the prestigious equestrian race, along with Carole and Michael Middleton – who were seen chatting and catching up with their son-in-law on the second day of the event.

Despite Kate’s absence at the Royal Ascot, her parents’ appearance was notable as it marked their first public event since she announced that she’s undergoing chemotherapy for cancer in March.

The Middletons were seen talking to members of the royal crowd as well as William, who was photographed speaking closely to them and even holding Carole’s hand in the Parade Ring ahead of the race.

Only time will tell whether Kate’s parents will get more involved in public-facing duties and events as the Princess of Wales and King Charles both go through cancer treatment, but it highlighted reports from the Palace that emphasized that Kate’s surprising Trooping the Colour appearance didn’t mean she was returning to work.
