In the massive shake-up and re-deployments that hit the police last week, the new Commissioner of Police, in charge of the Cross River State Command, Mr. Kola Sodipo resumed work today in Calabar.

Mr. Sodipo who until his new posting was the commissioner in-charge of Nigerian Ports Authority, Lagos, arrived Margaret Ekpo International Airport, Calabar, at about 12:05pm today, Monday aboard Arik airline from Lagos.

On arrival, he warned criminals in Cross River State to “either change their minds or relocate”.

In a brief interaction with crossriverwatch at the airport, the new commissioner said, “I’m here for good. I’m here to protect lives and properties. I’m here to implement the vision of the Inspector General of Police in Cross River State to fight criminals and criminalities and I have zero tolerance for indiscipline and corruption”.

“My mission here is to fight crime and ensure that there is peace and security in the state. I’m aware of the security situation of Cross River before I came here and we shall collectively make Cross River State a peaceful state that it is known for. My advice to the criminals who are hiding under the peaceful nature of the state to engage in their criminal acts is to either change their minds or relocate”.

He promised to consolidate on the efforts of his predecessor and to support the tourism drive of the Cross River State government and ensure that those working under his command are motivated.

The commissioner advised the men and officers of the command to play by the rules of the service or face the law.

He said his administration will foster peaceful co-existence amongst the civil populace.

It would be recalled that the Inspector General of Police last Wednesday announced the re-deployment of 16 new state commissioners of police with a charge to adopt proactive and aggressive crime fighting strategies in tackling terrorism and other crimes in their respective states.

The IGP has also charged the new police commissioners to re-dedicate themselves to the service of humanity, fight corruption in all its ramifications and ensure that no stone was left unturned in tackling violent crimes.
