Barely one week since Mr. Kenneth Ebrimson assumed duties as the 28th commissioner of police in Akwa Ibom State Police Command, he has suddenly become a former CP of the state as a new one has arrived to take over from him.

Before the redeployment to Akwa Ibom, he was the Commissioner of Police for Ogun State Police Command.

“The Commissioner of Police, whose legacies precedes him as a community policing advocate, is reputed for mobilizing a joint security operation which to a large extent tackled the menace of the deadly Badoo Cult group known for killing several persons in Ikorodu and Ogijo areas of Lagos and Ogun States.

“ The Commissioner of Police who is a reputable administrative and an operational fellow, has promised to entrench visibility and community based policing in line with international best practices to bring crime to the lowest level in the State.
