Chairman of the most volatile Council area in Delta state, Uvwie Local Government, Hon. Ramson Onoyake, has described Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Ekpan, CSP Aliyu Shaba, as an exceptional police officer whose zero tolerance to crimes played a major role in sustainable peace recorded in the area.


Speaking while presenting the award to CSP Shaba at the Council Secretariat in Effurun, yesterday, during the Commissioning ceremony of his legacy projects by Governor Sheriff Oborevwori, the Council boss applauded him for his effective policing strategy that had yielded positive results in making the area safe and calm.


Recounting how tensed and unsecured Ekpan community had been, mostly when it comes to community unrest and violent crimes being perpetrated, even at day time, Onoyake explained that based on concerted efforts of police operatives in the area led by CSP Shaba, the residents are now confident of their safety.


According to him; “This award today is in recognition of the remarkable impact of one of the finest police officer who had served relentlessly at the Ekpan Division in bringing sustainable peace to our area”.


“CSP Shaba’s rare commitment to a crime-free society is one of the driving forces that propelled him to working tirelessly with his men and officers in making sure our community is not just safe but also secured for both residents and strangers at any time of the day”.


Continuing; “I’ve had the opportunity of working with quite a number of Divisional Police Officers in the last six years of my tenure as Chairman and I can tell you that CSP Aliyu Shaba, has distinguished himself as the most outstanding and therefore the best police officer to have served in this Division”.

“It is therefore on behalf of the entire management and staff of Uvwie Local Government area and the good people of this kingdom, that I present to you this award of recognition as the BEST Divisional Police Officer (DPO) to have worked so hard in combating crimes and other social vices that had curbed rising crimes waves in the community”.


“We are so excited that with your coming, residents of Uvwie Council, both indigenes and non-indigenes, have enjoyed a remarkable improvement in the safety of their lives and property”.


“We therefore wish to acknowledge your impact with this award as a mark of recognition for the great job you have done in our community and wish you the very best in future endeavors in your policing career”, he stated.


It would be recalled that CSP Aliyu Shaba, had contributed immensely in the peace recorded so far in Ekpan community by liaising with the various clan heads to embark on arms and ammunition mop-up in the community through a disarmament program he initiated; “Surrender Your Arms And Get Pardoned”, which led to hundreds of youths dropping their weapons.


He had also decimated many criminal gangs and notorious armed robbery and kidnapping kingpins like dreaded Momotimi, Bobone, Aka “Ogbanje”, Ololo, Scorpion and many other in Warri, Effurun, Udu and its environs since he was posted to the state.


Based on his policing efforts, night life has gradually returned to once sleepy city of Warri and its environs, as residents are going about their businesses without fear of robbery attacks.
