Mr Joseph Mbu, Assistant Inspector-General (AIG) of Police, was on Saturday pulled out from the force as the Commandant, Police Staff College, Jos.
Mbu was enrolled into the force in 1985.
At the ceremony, Mbu described his service years as fulfilling and urged men and officers still in service to always eschew ‘eye service’ in the discharge of their duties.
“I am privileged as a police officer to head various formations and commands, including the political capital, Abuja, and the economic capital, Lagos.
“ Other formations and commands I headed as commissioner of police include the Directorate of Police Education, Mobile Force, Oyo, Rivers and the FCT.
“ I was also the Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone 7, Abuja, Zone 2, Lagos and also the Elite College, the highest Police institution in Nigeria,’’ he said.
Mbu called on the media not to over flog the alleged “sins” of some policemen in the course of duty, but rather to seek and understand their peculiar circumstances and work as partners with them to ensure peace and sanity in the country.
