"I NEARLY CRIED YESTERDAY WHEN I HEARD WHAT HAPPENED AT FEGGE ONITSHA POLICE STATION AND HOW THE YOUTHS RESPONDED TO DPO RABIU GARBA,A GOOD POLICE OFFICER TO EMULATE*
A man who never put tribalism, religion or differences in his work.... True to his calling to serve our nation without influence of any politician. Not an Igbo man but he speaks Igbo in a way you will be mesmerized and full of laughter whenever he speaks.. He will tell you Nwannah why disobeying the law? People say police is not your friend but in this man I disagree with that notion. In him, i immensely believe that police is a friend.... Yesterday the youth was rampaging looking for Police Station to burn down. When they troop to his Fegge Police Station with gallons of fuel and weapons, most of his men was grip with fear, Behold !, when he came out, the Chants of the angry youths Change from
" We no go agree oh we no go agree oh" to
"DPO Garba you be our friend,
DPO Garba You be our man"
He addressed then properly, lectured them all and changed their perspective towards embracing calmness.. If you know him well you will know he can lecture very well from every angles of courses, law to Biology , physics to Science, religion to culture, he is the master of all... We call him Professor Rabiu. Tears nearly fall from my eyes tears of Joy and appreciation of a good man still serving and existing in Police.
This is a Police man i have ever see who believe that hardworking pays. He is a police man and a Farmer as well. He is a Police man and a Civil Engineer. He is a Police man and a Lecturer as well...
To me, I am encouraging all police men and woman to emulate this Young man and learn from his Public relation skill. Because I strongly believe Public relationship should be practiced to serve the public interest, to develop mutual understanding between organizations, the neighborhood and their publics.
As a Psychologist, i have noticed that without publicity there can be no public support, and without public support every nation must decay.”
DPO Rabiu Garba we all know was the man who single handedly build a Borehole water for the people of Fegge Where his station is situated without donations from the public. If i lie verify from anyone you know living in fegge.
He also Organized Sports event for the youth at fegge Stadium where he normally engaged them in Table Tenis playing competition after work.. He walks among all without gun, knife or tear gas because he does his work diligently without corruption. So no fear of the mob.
He attends many church events he is been invited for around onitsha which shows his sense of unity.
When police do bad we mock them when we see one doing good pls my brothers and sister let us encourage that one as to lift his or her spirit to do more because ndi ba anyi is na Etoo dike na nkem omeru omekwa ozo....
DPO Rabiu Garba enyi Oha nile. No wonder people once cried when you wanted to leave to another Station. How i wish we have thousands of police men and women like you, the Police institution would have been so harmonized.....keep up the good work. Good market sells itself in the market...
No wonder Odumeje cherish you so much.
Thank you once again for the way you handled the youth matter yesterday which results to zero casualties at Fegge District...
