A former director of the Department of State Services (DSS), Mike Ejiofor, has commended some police officers, saying they diligently do their jobs but are not being recognised.

Ejiofor, who spoke during an interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, said the suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police, Abba Kyari, should carry his cross following his involvement in a 25 kilograms cocaine deal.

While describing Kyari’s conduct as unprofessional, he took a swipe at the lifestyle exhibited by the disgraced police deputy commissioner.

“That was quite unprofessional and I think the police too have done well in cooperating with the various agencies in handing him over to the NDLEA,” he said.

“It is very unprofessional for a serving police officer to be living the kind of life he was living. We are expecting more and more petitions, I believe, will come up.

“I can tell you that we have more police officers who are doing their jobs more creditably than Abba Kyari that have not even been recognised and given the type of publicity given to Abba Kyari. For me, he has to face his cross.

“It has come to a point that the police management, on their own, part, gave him the necessary support and all the necessary requirements, and he now tried to outshine his masters to the point that people were now saying he is a future IG.

“It’s very very embarrassing and I think it’s a lesson for all of us that people should not be dramatising operations. A situation where you see an officer filming, just like we have politically exposed persons, he eventually became a socially exposed police officer, filming his operations, he was on Facebook, YouTube, he was virtually everywhere.”
