3 The journalists in the statement said that Balogun’s demise came as a rude shock to all.
4 It console the family and urged them to take solace in the fact that death was a debt all owed.
5 The statement said that under the command of Balogun, ‘Operation Fire for Fire’ was launched to arrest growing banditry and cross-border robbery.
7 “Undoubtedly, he will be sorely missed by CRAN members and we pray for comfort for the family he left behind,” it said.
8 The statement further said that the late Balogun was a cop par excellence whose service recorded in the police yielded tangible results, especially in the area of welfare and promotion of personnel.
10 “Despite that his service termination came as a shock, he still commanded respect among police officers who often described his administration as “the best I-GP” of all times.
11 “The reason is not far-fetched; the late Balogun was a welfarist who beyond the gruff and tough exterior, valued the welfare of officers and men,” it said.
12 CRAN in the statement pointed out that Balogun dedicated his retirement years to clamour for community policing, stressing on the need to strengthen the traditional institution to boost internal security operations.
