His predecessor, Mr Sam Okaula, who retired at the age of 60 this June handed over to the new police Commissioner, CP G.B. Umar in a colourful ceremony.

Okaula assumed office at the headquarters of the state Police Command, Awka, and was received by the management of the command led by the Deputy Commissioner of Police in- charge of Administration and Finance, DCP Sokari Pedro.

The arrival of the new Police Commissioner was celebrated by a Guard of Honour, mounted by the police at the headquarters and was inspected by the new Commissioner.

The Guard of Honour was preceded by a formal handover by his predecessor, Mr Sam Okaula at the Commissioner's office.

The new commissioner who hails from Kaduna state, served in Bauchi State as the immediate past state commissioner of police in the state before his new posting to Anambra State.

In his speech, the new Commissioner of Police, Garba Umar disclosed that the people of the state deserve their right to peace and tranquility, adding that no amount of threat from any quarter, would undermine the quality of life they had been enjoying in the state.
The new Police boss called for maximum support of all citizens to further sustain the tempo of security in the state, which, according to him, had adjudged it the safest state in the country.
While acknowledging the efforts of Governor Obiano in providing the necessary equipment to fight crime, C. P Umar promised to clamp down crime and criminality in the state, which, he said, formed his basic responsibility.

Mr Umar who described the command as vanguard of modern policing, charged them to always display high level of transparency and honesty in discharging their duties.
According to him "Let me quickly remind you of a few singsong of the IGP such as change begins-with-me, bail is free and zero tolerance for corruption"
He appreciated the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris for the opportunity given to him to serve, praying that his stewardship would bring great honour to the state.

Performing the handover ceremony, the former Commissioner of Police, Mr Sam Okaula expressed satisfaction to the state government for its endless support in the fight against crime and criminality.

Mr Okaula called for an unprecedented support to the new police boss who had been an internationally-acclaimed crime fighter, and had gained global wealth of experience in the fight against crime and criminality.

He however enjoined every journalist to cooperate with the new commissioner and properly crosscheck their information before publishing to ensure peaceful coexistence between press and the police.
