Foundation donates operational vehicles to Kogi Police Command


an NGO, the Waives of Success Foundation, has donated three operational vehicles to the Nigeria Police Force, Kogi Command, to boost security logistics for crime fighting in the state.

The Chairman and Founder of the foundation, Ocholi Okpanachi, while presenting the vehicles to the command on Tuesday in Lokoja, stressed the need for concerted support to help the police curtail the spate of crime in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the vehicles presented were three Volkswagen Sharon mini-buses.

Okpanachi, represented by the Executive Director of the foundation, hinged the extension of the hands of fellowship to the police on the increasing cases of armed robbery, kidnapping and other criminal activities being experienced in the state in recent times.

“As an NGO, part of our social responsibilities to our immediate society is to complement government’s fight against insecurity of lives and property of citizens.

“We are ready to work with the police in finding lasting solution to the alarming rate of crimes across the state.

“Security of lives and property of the people should be seen as joint efforts among the police, individuals and organisations”, Okpanachi said.

He appealed to the people of the state to redouble their efforts in availing security agencies with useful information that would assist them in ridding the state of criminals.

Mr Ede Ayuba, the state Commissioner of Police, who received the operational vehicles on behalf of the Nigeria Police Force, commended the foundation for the assistance and promised to utilise the vehicles for the intended purposes.

Ayuba described the foundation as a ‘God sent’ organisation that would ever be remembered for impacting positively on the lives of the people and called on other foundations in the state to emulate the gesture.

According to him, government alone cannot provide all the facilities needed to secure the lives and property of Nigerians, hence the need for joint collaboration and synergy to further guarantee security of lives and property.

The police commissioner pledged to, against all odds, sustain the fight against crime and the efforts to flush out criminal elements in the state.
