He told them to always exhibit good characters which they are known for while serving in the command.
He said there is no way they will not be missed by the officers and men who worked closely with them, saying transfer is a routine exercise.
The police boss hinted that their impacts would be highly felt in the state, adding that the job of the police is a continuous one, saying “Soldier come soldier go barrack still remains”.

He commended them for the good job they did while serving in the command, urging them to reciprocate such in their new areas of assignments.
The former local government boss charged them to continue to be worthy Ambassadors of the Nation and continue to discharge their lawful responsibilities.
He commended the police boss for taking out time out of his tight schedule to attend the occasion, saying it is a sign of good leadership.
Speaking, DCP Akinyade appreciated the command for putting a befitting send-forth party for him and other senior colleagues who are unavoidably absent during the ceremony.
He said his transfer to Sokoto State Police Command is a blessing in disguise, adding that he is going there to conquer and make his impact known as he had done in Ondo state.
According to him, police job continues irrespective of where someone is posted to, saying transfer in the police is a routine exercise.
