The Ogun State Community, Social Orientation and Safety Corps also known as So-Safe Corps with heavy heart mourn the demise of a security icon and Ogun State Amotekun Commander, CP David Akinremi (rtd).
The statement is contained in the press release issued from the office of the State Commander of So-Safe Corps Commander (Dr) Soji Ganzallo through the office of the Director of Information and Public Relations of the Corps, Assistant Commander Moruf Yusuf.
The death of CP David Akinremi (Rtd) could be likened to the sinking of the unsinkable and this is indeed a very big loss to Ogun State. We received the news with rude shock.
Ganzallo, while eulogizing and describing the death of the late Pioneer Commander of Ogun State Security Network Agency codenamed Amotekun Corps, said since day one I met the Commander, we have been friends and brothers and he has played the role of a mentor to me and my management team till the time of his death.
Uncle Dave, as I used to call him was a very open, blunt, wonderful, large-hearted, intelligent, strategic, adaptable, adept and a very adventurous person. He was a man of integrity, who had passion for the security job, with his love for Ogun State and Nigeria at large.
Ganzallo noted that till the commander’s last breath, he believed Ogun State shall stand out among the comity of States in the Country security and safety-wise.
His death has left an unhealing wound in our hearts. And we shall never forget the role he played to secure Ogun State.
Meanwhile, we commiserate with Prince Dapo Abiodun CON-led Ogun State Administration and the family left behind by the late Commander of Amotekun.
“We know it’s a big loss. But his good deeds and joint efforts in stabilizing Ogun State Security at the grassroots level linger on in our memories.
“We pray that the good Lord gives the wonderful family he left behind the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss,” he said.
