Adewusi was a brilliant police officer, says Ajimobi



Oyo State Governor Abiola Ajimobi yesterday described the late former Inspector General of Police (IGP), Sunday Adewusi, as an extremely brilliant Police officer who left an untainted legacy.

Adewusi died on January 26 at the National Hospital, Abuja at the age of 79.

Adewusi, who is from Ogbomoso, took over from Adamu Suleiman as IGP in 1981.

Ajimobi spoke at the Beulah Baptist Convention ground, Ogbomoso during the funeral service for the former IGP.

He said: “Pa Adewusi was a great man of honor and integrity. We are very proud to produce such a man of impeccable character and brilliance.

“He was extremely Godly and religious. He served humanity, Nigeria and Africa. He was the youngest IGP Nigeria ever produced. Within a span of 26 years, he became IGP. I envy him so much.”

In his own tribute, IGP Solomon Arase said Adewusi was the Nostradamus of Nigeria Police who foresaw the future of Nigeria Police and prepared for its tomorrow.

“We shall also continue in that perspective. We will not bury him with his virtue and legacy. His legacy and virtue shall be kept.
