At a time when many Nigerians are condemning some operatives of the Nigeria Police Force for brutalisation, extortion and other nefarious acts, a man seems to have something good about the NPF.

He shared his recent encounter with the NPF when his family was in distress.

The man identified as Ogujor Efe took to Twitter on Tuesday to shower accolades on the police for rescuing his family from being robbed by a suspected burglar who had broken into their home in Ibadan, Oyo State late in the night while he was away in Ondo State.

Efe said after receiving a distress call from his wife that a burglar was in their apartment, he searched online where he got a phone number on the NPF website which he called immediately.

“The phone number turned out to be the number of the CP Oyo state,” he said

He added:

“I called the line and he picked immediately. He collected my details and in less than 2mins, he told me he has contacted the DPO NPF Ojoo (Ibadan) and he has given them my phone number. This was few mins after 12am, in less than 15mins the men of the NPF Ojoo have secured my compound and have also gone into my apartment to bring my family out.”

Efe who was full of appreciation to the NPF wrote:

Dear @PoliceNG. So, I got a distress call from my wife about someone who had entered our apartment with the intention to ROB, I was confused because I was far away in Akure. I called a relative but his phone number was off, so I called my neighbour to inform them about what was happening in my flat.

“Still confused I started googling and I stumbled upon a phone number which turned out to be the phone number of the CP Oyo state from NPF website, I called the line and he picked immediately. He collected my details and in less than 2mins, he told me he has Contacted the DPO NPF Ojoo (Ibadan) and he has given them my phone number. This was few mins after 12am, in less than 15mins the men of the NPF Ojoo have secured my compound and have also gone into my apartment to bring my family out. The Burglar left the scene immediately.

“He heard the Policemen were around. This happened while he was still trying to gain access into the bedroom to rob my wife. At 12am, at the point where it is difficult to see help. I really want to appreciate the CP in charge of Oyo state, the DPO Ojoo Police station.

“And the Entire @PoliceNG. We’ve heard so many bad stories about NPF but I am a living witness that the @PoliceNG are working and timely once you make the right contacts. Just to let you all know, I don’t know anyone of (NPF) that came to help. I only Google searched and help came.”

The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) on Monday redeemed its pledge of N60 million to the Capital Market Support Committee for COVID-19 (CMSCC) with the donation of an ambulance and N22.7 million cash.

The Chief Executive Officer, NSE, Mr Oscar Onyema, disclosed this in a statement made available to newsmen in Lagos.

CMSCC is a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)-led initiative set up to stimulate the capital market ecosystem to play an active role in curbing the spread of COVID-19 in Nigeria.

Onyema said that the initiative was in furtherance of the collaboration in fighting the pandemic, targeting the very vulnerable in the society.

“We are facing an unprecedented crisis that requires us to adopt a more collaborative approach in fighting this pandemic, especially as economic activity and social interactions resume.

“As we work to encourage the use of reusable face masks and adherence to other safety guidelines, we call on responsible corporate citizens and well-meaning individuals to support this initiative by wearing a mask when in public settings and donating masks especially to those at the bottom of the pyramid, so as to protect lives.

“As part of the Masks For All Nigerians campaign, the Exchange executed a nationwide awareness campaign on social media and radio to educate Nigerians on the need to wear face masks, practice social distancing and maintain good hygiene.

“It also involved its Good Cause Ambassador, Innocent ‘TuFace’ Idibia, to amplify the need for Nigerians to wear and donate face masks via www.masksforallng.com, as well as adhere to the guidelines put in place to keep our communities safe.

“As part of its Employee Giveback Programme, members of staff are also donating 500 masks per week to Nigerians,” he said.

Onyema also said that the Exchange was displaying undaunted support in the fight against COVID-19.

“The Exchange has displayed remarkable resilience during this pandemic and continues to support the fight against COVID-19 in line with the strategic pillars of its Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility (CSR) strategy – community, workplace, marketplace and environment.

“The Masks For All Nigerians campaign and the attendant mask donation will provide immense support to the Government in reaching communities who have hitherto been left vulnerable.

“The Exchange also continues to sustain market activity through remote working and trading; promote market deepening activities; create an enabling regulatory environment for stakeholders; and recognise the efforts of public and private sector players in raising awareness, ramping up testing and increasing the capacity of the health sector to slow the spread of COVID-19,” he said.

The statement said the donation was received by the Chairman of CMSCC, Mr Ariyo Olushekun and the Director, Lagos Zonal Office, SEC, Mr Steven Falomo.
