While assuring the governor and people of the state of practical policing under his leadership, the police commissioner said that he would ensure enthronement of rule of law, while jungle justice of any kind would not be condoned.

In his remarks, Ortom assured security agencies operating in the state of his administration’s continued support for the safety of lives and property.

Ortom said that his administration would not interfere in the cause of security agencies delivering on their mandates.

He also acknowledged the competence of the new CP to deliver on his assignment, based on his credentials.

The governor commended the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) and the Police Service Commission (PSC) for sending such an experienced officer to the state.

He tasked security operatives on professionalism and respect for human rights, even as he commended the joint security outfit, codenamed: ‘Operation Zenda’ for its strides in dealing with security.
