The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Wednesday inaugurated the 13th Zonal Command of the Nigeria Police Force in Ukpo, Dunukofia Council Area of Anambra State
The Zonal Command will be in charge of Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu States.
Speaking at the Inauguration, Adamu, who was represented by DIG Celestine Okoye, said the new zonal command was an addition to strengthening the existing security in the South East Geopolitical Zone.
He poured encomiums on businessman, Prince Arthur Eze, saying he not only supported the police in actualizing the project but also worked with the people of Ukpo Community to provide and renovate the temporary operational base.
‘Though there were contestations about the supposed location of the zonal command, Ukpo met every requirement as it is also within the state capital territory.
‘The AIG to head this zonal command, Mohammed Dan Mallam, was selected after a painstaking search and I assure you that he is the best man for the job,’ Okoye assured.
The new AIG of the zone, Dan Mallam, thanked the IGP for appointing him to head the zone and promised to work for greater peace and security in the states under the Zonal Command.
