Man narrates the inspiring story of how he got a first-class from a federal university as a police officer
The MOPOL officer who hails from Gwaram local government area of Jigawa state is a sergeant.
He said: "I was awarded a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminology and Security Studies, First Class Honor by Federal University Dutse, Jigawa state. As a Police Personnel, this is rare in Nigeria.
"So I feel it is worth sharing to send a different impression about Police Personnel. Moreover, I honestly want to publish because the NPF doesn't recognize such achievement, especially where a Junior Officer is involved. By the way, I am a Sergeant by rank.
"I wish to add that I hail from Gwaram LG of Jigawa state and currently serving as MOPOL in the same state."
