By Prince Sunny Ebhojiaye.

Former National and Africa boxing lightweight champion, Kelly Ikhuoria has just been promoted to Superintendent of police SP due to his hard work and meritorious service.  There were a lot of celebration at the Abatoir police divisional headquarters at Agege, Lagos last week to celebrate with  the vice chairman police boxing association, SP Ikhuoria.

The police fighting machine, a trail blazer, motivator and  no nonsense dogged crime fighter, who is still doing more has become an Iroko tree that serves as source of protection to all and sundry.
Indeed, in his sojourn in the Nigeria police and the various landmarks achievements, he has accomplished what many of his course mates have not achieved.

The newly promoted SP Kelly Ikhuoria was transferred to Sambisa Boko Haram to fight the  dreaded Fulani Islamic fighters by former  General of police, IGP Idris Ibrahim.  He left  no one in doubt that he went to rid the Sambisa forest of banditry. 

He went, saw and conquered. Within a short period, SP Ikhuoria swayed his usual magic wand by leading his men on serious attack against Boko Haram and arrested some of the notorious dreaded gangs in joint patrol with the military. 

In boxing, Kelly Ikhuoria conquered Nigeria and Africa in lightweight category. SP Ikhuoria, is the Divisional Traffic Officer(D TO), Abotoir Agege, Lagos. When we talk of an officer who is level headed, active and courageous when duty calls, SP Ikhuoria,is number one on the list and no doubt a perfect example.

He is planning to present his title championship belt to IGP Usman Alkali Baba and two of his mentors .

The intelligent and brilliant super cop will be visiting his godfathers, High Chief Raymond Dokpesi, Chairman DAAR communicatios, owner of Raypower Radio, AIT and Faaji FM and Senator Ben Murray Bruce, the Chief Executive Officer, Silverbird and television.
