Commissioner of Police, Osun Command, Mr Kola Sodipo, said the IGP approved the promotion to avoid stagnation which was identified as one of the frustrating indices that engender corruption in the Nigeria Police.

The promoted policemen, according to Arase included personnel who have consistently risked their lives and courageously confronted insurgents in the North East.

The pupils awarded scholarship are; Adebayo David, Ogunjumelo Akinremi, Adewole Deborah, Azeez Rahman, Salaudeen Mubarak and James Solomon.

The CP said the scholarship was aimed at encouraging children of serving officers that exhibit academic excellence, adding “it is also conceptualized as part of the posthumous support scheme for children of our professional colleagues who have gallantly paid the supreme sacrifice in the service of their fatherland.

Sodipo while reviewing the activities of the command in the last quarter of 2015, said that 18 vehicles were recovered from October 2015 to date, noting that crime rate in the state have reduced due to efforts of the police.

He however promised that the command will not relent in their efforts to rid the state of all forms of crime in the state.
