The Lagos state Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has condoled with the family of the former Inspector-General of Police, Etim Inyang.

The ex-police boss died on Monday, September 26, 2016, according to a statement from the family.

Ambode, in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Habib Aruna, said “Sir Inyang who rose from the rank of recruit to be Inspector General, was one of the best police chiefs this country has had over the years. Despite the high wave of crime that characterised the period he was in the saddle, he was dogged and consistent in his quest to bring the activities of a notorious armed robbery gang led by Lawrence Anini and his cohorts to a halt.

“Though his stint as the Inspector General of Police was short, he contributed his quota to the entrenchment of peace and security across the country. He succeeded in initiating the manhunt for Anini which eventually paid off under his successor.”

“On behalf of the good people of Lagos State, I wish to convey my deepest condolences to the family of the deceased,” the Governor said.
