Kogi State Governor Alhaji Yahaya Bello has mourned the death of the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, (AIG), in charge of Zone eight Yunana Babas.
Newsmen gathered that Babas died on Thursday night after a brief illness.
It was gathered that late Babas was expected to retire 17 days before his death.
Speaking on the death of the zone eight AIG in charge of Kwara, Kogi, and Ekiti, the Chief Press Secretary to the Kogi State Governor Onogwu Mohammed, in a statement on Friday on behalf of Governor Yahaya Bello and the people of Kogi State said the sudden death of the senior police officer was a monumental tragedy to the nation.
Governor Yahaya Bello who earlier laid wreaths in Lokoja to commemorate the Armed Forces Remembrance Day 2021 said the unexpected death of AIG Babas was another reason to celebrate officers and men of all law enforcement agencies in the country while they are still alive to enjoy it.
The statement reads” On behalf of the good people of Kogi State and myself, Governor Yahaya Bello, may I offer our deepest condolences on this monumental tragedy to his family and friends, the Kogi State Police Command and the national police hierarchy, especially our good friend Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police”.
‘Leadership at all levels must see to it that our law enforcement officers, the men and women who stand between us and criminality, terrorism and total anarchy are appreciated by the system while they can enjoy it. We can start by showing these patriots who often serve at the risk of their own lives that we appreciate their sacrifices by tremendously improving on their present conditions of service.’
“AIG Babas was a decent, gallant and intelligent police officer. He was a key component of our award-winning security architecture in Kogi State. He led from the front and provided a rallying influence for his men across the states of Zone 8, particularly in the Kogi State Police Command”.
