Two Assistant Commissioners of Police have bagged the Global Peace Initiatives Ambassador Awards for their contributions to humanitarian service.
The awardees are Mr Mohammed Shamsudeen and Ezekiel Ibrahim and they are of the department of recurrent expenditure at the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters, Abuja.
Presenting the awards to the duo, the President of Youth Initiative for Diversity in Nigeria (YIDIN), Comrade Badamasi Sadiq Ibrahim, described them as thoroughbred police officers, who had contributed greatly to humanitarian service.
He said they were carefully selected and considered for the awards because of their track record of service, adding that they had used their offices to fight for the oppressed and help the needy.
In his acceptance speech, ACP Mohammed Shamsudeen, thanked the organisation for the honour bestowed on him and pledged to do his best to promote unity in the country.
He, however, warned the youth to shun violence and thuggery as the country goes to polls on February 16, saying that anybody caught would be dealt with in accordance with the appropriate laws.
Also, ACP Ezekiel Ibrahim thanked YIDIN for the conferment of the honour on him and promised to do his best in the promotion of peace and oneness in the country.
He cautioned the youth not to allow themselves to be used as thugs during this month’s election, warning that anyone caught would be prosecuted in accordance with the country’s constitution.
