DIVISIONAL Police Headquarters, Abagana, in Njikoka Local Government Area, Anambra State, is undergoing a transformation and wearing a new look, courtesy  of the  DPO, CSP UgochukwuEzejiofor and the magnanimity of well spirited philanthropists from communities within the division.

  The transformation project include: renovation cum painting of the main building, perimeter fence; sinking of an ultra modern borehole; roofing and completion of a hall, office and recreation block abandoned for over 27 years ago.

  Our reporter gathered that the abandoned building housing about four offices, three recreational rooms and a 100 capacity hall was initiated by the late Chief Frank Anthony Igboka when he was Njikoka Local Government Chairman during Governor ChinwokeMbadinuju’s tenure.

  According to the clan head of EnuoraUmudunu, Abagana, Chief Chris Anyakorah,” The DPO has been doing a great job. He has done what Barnabas could not do by defeating the Duke of Wellington”.

  “It is a welcome development. If the police have no conducive environment, they cannot operate. Police is your friend and government cannot do everything. We are peace loving people and support developmental projects.

  “People need to partner with police to fight crime and assist us in security. As the clan head of EnuoraUmudunu, I am proud of Abagana youths because there has not been recent reports of misdemeanors”, said Anyakorah.

  Moreover, the President General, Abagana, IkemOnwuadi described Ezejiofor as an aesthetic, faithful and hard working policeman who has changed the face of the station and police community relations within two years of resuming office as the DPO.

  “Our DPO is a serious minded officer. Under two years, he has put everything in order. He has earned the trust and admiration of the entire LGA, that is why our people are donating money for all those projects. In fact, Njikoka is due to become an area command”, said Sir Onwuadi.

  The PG thanked the DPO and several others who had been sponsoring the projects. He further thanked Governor Willie Obiano and the illustrious sons and daughters of Abagana for the stimulus packages donated to the vulnerable to cushion the effect of hunger generated by the COVID 19 lock down.

Onwuadi said that the community was cooperating with the state and federal government to ensure that all preventive measures were implemented to cub the spread of the dreaded pandemic.
