New Delta police boss assumes duty, promises criminals hard times

A new Commissioner of Police, CP Wale Abass, on Monday, assumed duty at the Delta State Command promising “to build on existing security mechanisms already in place towards enthroning the reign of peace and safety” in the state.

Abass is taking over as the 21st Commissioner of Police in Delta state as the immediate past holder of the office, AIG Ari Muhammed Ali, is being transferred to Lagos State as the Assistant Inspector General Zone 2.

The new state police boss advised the public to always cooperate with the force and other security agencies at all times while tasking the youths not to allow themselves to be used for any act of criminality.

Abass noted that he was not new to Delta State, and as such would continue from where his predecessor stopped while assuring Deltans that the Command, under his leadership, would ensure that the state became uncomfortable for criminals.
