Although he has spent less than fifty days in his position as the new commissioner of Police for Imo State, Mr. Isaac Olutayo Akinmoyede has really achieved a lot as regards security reformation in Imo State.
Mr. Akinmoyede took over from CP Fafowora Bolaji Olaniyi who retired from office last month.
The Lagos State-born Commissioner joined the Nigeria Police Force on 15th of March. 1988 as a Cadet Assistant Superintendant of Police after a brief stint with the National Defence College Abuja and was trained at the Police Academy Annex in Kaduna State.
His thirty-two years in the Police force has been put into good use, thanks to his very hardworking, thorough nature. Here are some of his sterling achievements:
- He served in Zone 6 Headquarters Calabar as Chief Superintendant of Police (CSP) Administration.
- He was at a time the head Stolen Vehicles Division of International Police (INTERPOL) Force CIID Annex Alagbon Close, Lagos.
- He also served at Enugu State Command at different times as AC CIID and AC Operations.
- As Deputy Commissioner of Police, he served at Zone 4 Headquarters Makurdi and later moved to Osun State Command as the Deputy Commissioner of Police Department of Finance and Administration as well as 2i/c Command.
- The cosmopolitan Police Officer has worked in virtually all the six geopolitical zones of the country and in almost all the departments in the Nigeria Police Force.
The present state of security in Nigeria nowadays is very deplorable and nothing to write home about.
It is very important that more positive-minded security officials like Mr Isaac Olutayo Akinmoyede are produced by the Nigerian police force to curb the high crime rate in Nigeria.
He has proven to be a great leader and a wonderful administrator with his synergy with public agencies and other organisations on solving common security problems. He has also built a wonderful working relationship with other security arms of the state such as the Nigerian Army, The Federal Road Safety Commission and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps by lending his full support in the eradication of banditry and the restoration of peace and harmony in the state.
