A police sergeant in Bauchi State identified as Godwin Hosea, has been promoted to the rank of Inspector for manufacturing a bullet proof jacket.
Decorating the officer at the police headquarters in Bauchi on Monday, the state police commissioner, Mohammed Mohammed, commended him for displaying exceptional talent.
“On 22/7/2015 during one day official working visit to Bauchi state command by the Inspector General of Police, IGP Solomon E Arase, one F/No 218346 Sgt Godwin Hosea presented a fabricated bullet proof jacket he manufactured locally to the IGP during the lecture parade, as a result, a visibly happy IGP instantly promoted the Sgt to the rank of Inspector with effect from 22/7/2015,” he said.
Represented by the deputy commissioner of police, Sumonu Abdumalik, the commissioner urged Mr. Hosea to rededicate himself to duty and reciprocate the gesture done to him by the IGP.
Mr. Mohammed also encouraged other officers to emulate Mr. Hosea and harness their God given talents to move the force and the nation forward.
In his response, the newly promoted Inspector, Godwin Hosea, thanked the IGP for the honour done to him and promised to be diligent in the discharge of his duty.
