By Anthony Maliki, Abuja

The Chairman of the Police Service Commission, (PSS), Dr. Solomon Arase, retired Inspector General of Police has received with shock the death of DIG Ibrahim Lamorde (rtd), former Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission , (EFCC), who passed on at the age of 61 in Egypt where he was receiving medical attention.

The PSC Chairman eulogised Lamorde’s humility and temperate disposition to the allure of power.

This was contained in a statement by Ikechukwu Ani, PSC Head of Press and Public Relations.

He recalled his advice to the late super cop after he left the services of the EFCC, not to get into mainstream policing immediately but to further horn his policing and leadership skills at the Nigerian Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS, an advise he accepted and which was later to postively shape his career in the Nigeria Police Force.

Dr. Arase noted that at no time did power get into the head of the late Officer who he said remained humble and committed throughout his career. ” The training he got at NIPSS prepared him for the greater Policing challenges he faced as he climbed the ladder of success”.

The PSC Chairman said the nation has lost one of its bright and consumate intelligence Officers who contributed immensely to the growth of intelligence policing in Nigeria.

Rtd DIG Lamorde born in 1962, joined the Nigeria Police Force in 1986 and retired as a Deputy Inspector General of Police in 2021.

He served as the 3rd Chairman of the EFCC between 2011 and 2015. He hails from Mubi in Adamawa State.
