From Emmanuel Ojukwu, Force PRO
The Nigeria Police Force regrets to announce the sudden death of one of its most dedicated officers, AIG Ibrahim Maishanu, who passed away on 8th February, 2015 at an Indian Hospital while undergoing treatment.
AIG Ibrahim Maishanu until his death was the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Information Technology, Force Headquarters, Abuja.
Late AIG Ibrahim Maishanu who hailed from Yabo Local Government Area of Sokoto State was born on the 11th of October, 1959. He was enlisted into the Force as a Cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police (Cadet ASP) on the 1st January, 1984 and had his initial training at the Nigeria Police College, Ikeja, Lagos. He held a Bachelor of Science degree in Management and had attended several Professional Courses both at home and abroad. He was an alumnus of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) Kuru, Jos.
He was a versatile and well travelled officer who has served as Commissioner of Police in Ekiti, Ogun, Niger and Imo States. A consummate Police Officer and a caring family man, he would be remembered by his colleagues and friends within and outside the Force as a fine and patriotic officer who gave his best to the service of his fatherland.
While commiserating with the immediate family and the entire officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba, prayed that the Almighty Allah grants him eternal rest and give the family the fortitude to bear the loss.
