A breaking news heritage! a cast of heroes

DCP Adegoke Fayoade Annointed police officer with differences reforming SCID, Lagos, breaking grounds with new record.

By Prince Sunny Ebhojiaye.
Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP Adegoke M. Fayoade in charge of Lagos State SCIID Panti, Yaba, is a man of pace who patiently looks to the future with courage and hope.  His commitment in the direction of transforming the state into a relatively better integrated and functional police force, capable of securing effectively the interest of the various communities and giving the opportunity to develop and live in peace with one another finds no parallel.

DCP Adegoke has transformed SCIID and made the formation a better oriented department. He was posted to Lagos State criminal investigation and intellience department (SCIID) to organised and to sensitise the place with radical change. Lagos State SCIID used to be no go area for Nigerians seeking to released suspects due to smelling and dirty area before.
DCP Fayoade made Lagos Panti, Yaba, a disciplined and friendly police department with a dignified manner, good conduct and accessible police formation. Adegoke Fayoade, a deeply religious and God fearing senior police officer takes the issue of his Christian religion very seriously.

                    DCP. Fayoade

Never a man to joke with the dictates of his religious calling, he is the Deputy Commissioner of Police, DCP and current Officer in charge of State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, Yaba, Lagos State.

He is a truly devoted Christian who cannot do without God’s. He is darling of Nigerians who support good causes showered with prayers.
DCP Fayoade is not your regular policeman in spite of the fact that the easy going gallant Officer has spent many years in the Nigeria police, he is an unsual soul who wants to stamp out crimes from Nigeria once and for all.

As an astute police officer with humour and style, his sense of sacrifice for humanity is built of safety, peaceful, co-existence and national development, from which his first dream of becoming a career ambassador emanated. Wherever he goes, his impact is being felt and SCIID is no exception, as this great security guru is making waves in Lagos State.

In recognition of his selfless service to humanity, he has been honoured in different quarters. His several chieftaincy titles, professional and social awards are from reputable bodies and committees across Nigeria. This practical Officer singlehandedly used tear gas to foil robbery gangs severally as a young police officer.

Today, CITY EXPRESS NEWS nominates DCP Adeoke M. Fayoade, as the best and indefatigable police man of the year.

Perhaps, one of the attributes that distinguished DCP Adegoke among his contemporaries is his passion and quest for knowledge.  If he had been born anywhere else, and another career, DCP Fayoade would still have been this illustrious and celebrated.
And if he had chosen another course, a career as a teacher, or Engineer, he would still be an icon and titan gallant and a man who easily makes any list of noble men and women.
Permit us to present a great Officer of the Millennium.
