IGP Solomon Arase

The Inspector-general of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, has commissioned a police barrack equipped with air conditioners and other modern facilities, constructed by the Edo State government at Iyoha, in Etsako-west local government area of the state.

The IGP who described the building as state-of-the-art barrack, expressed his gratitude to Governor Adams Oshiomhole, just as he appealed to well-meaning Nigerians and corporate organizations to take a cue from the Edo State government, saying that the business of securing the country is the responsibility of all.

According to him, “what Edo state government has given us is not just as barrack but a functional barrack to the Nigeria Police Force, that is on the human aspect of it. Secondly we will now be able to use the men that are posted in this barrack to lock down the highway between here and Lokoja which has become very serious security threat to the nation.

“So we are using both the comfort of our officers and also the security imperative of the nation putting both of them together. I am very excited. I am grateful to the Comrade governor for having the interest of the Nigerian government and the police at heart.

“We are also appealing to corporate organizations, public spirited Nigerians to be able to reach out to us the way the Comrade governor has reached out to us today. They say to whom much is given much is expected. The Comrade governor has done much for us I am sure officers that will come and stay this conducive home will have no choice than to give their best to Nigerians that have done so much for them. It is a state of the art facility” he stated.

Speaking earlier, governor Oshiomhole who explained that “What we have here, one side of the block was intended for the rank and file, then for the officers we have two, bed room flats. We have two bedroom unit in each block and then we have a four bedroom unit for the commander. My intension like I told the contractor was to do something very good.

“My own idea was to make the residence of the commander of the Mobile Police Unit so attractive that the commissioner of police may be tempted to come and live here. Part of our challenge in Nigeria is convincing the elites to accept that there is life outside the big cities. That you can actually get unpolluted air and access to nature and eat organic foods as opposed to foods that have been preserved in deep freezers for weeks.”
