Senate president Ahmad Lawan has decorated two of his security aides who were recently promoted by the Nigeria Police Force.
The aides were decorated by the senate president on Tuesday. He was assisted by the the senate committee chair on police affairs, Jika Dauda Halliru (APC, Bauchi), during a brief ceremony held in his office at the National Assembly Complex, Abuja.
The decorated aides are: Umar Saidu Gajo – who was promoted from Superintendent of Police to Chief Superintendent of Police; and Olaniyan Mojeed Abidemi – promoted from Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) to Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP).
While Gajo serves as Aide de Camp (ADC) to Senate President Ahmad Lawan; Abidemi on the other hand is an Escort Commander on his security team.
Mojeed Abidemi, as Commander of the official convoy of the Senate President, recorded a patriotic feat when he saved the lives of five Nigerians involved in an auto crash that occurred along the Onicha-Ugbo-Asaba expressway in February last year.
Lawan, immediately after decorating both sides, congratulated the officers and wished them well in the discharge of their duties.
