President Muhammadu Buhari expresses deep sadness and grief at the news of the death of Assistant Commissioner of Police, Abdulahi Ibrahim, on Friday in a car accident.
ACP Ibrahim died with his wife while his children who were travelling with him to Onitsha, his post, are responding to treatment.
Recalling his tour of duty as Commander MOPOL 24 in the State House, between 2016 and 2019 where he was entrusted with the delicate responsibility of ensuring the safety of the president and his motorcade, President Buhari said:
“ACP Ibrahim was a highly dedicated officer, responsible and extremely reliable. He undertook his job most professionally. He knew what was expected of him and carried it out to the letter.”
The President commiserates with the Government and people of Bauchi State , the Inspector General of Police and the Nigeria Police Force on the loss of such a highly dependable officer at a time that the nation looks up to such dedicated personnel.
He prays that God Almighty will comfort family, friends and colleagues who mourn, grant the children quick recovery and repose the souls of the departed.
