Before his redeployment as the FCT Commissioner of Police, He was the Commander of the Special Intervention Squad, Abuja.

While addressing senior officers of the Command in the maiden meeting of his administration, the CP tasked officers to be dutiful and wake up to their responsibilities, as his administration would have zero tolerance for laxity.

He further stated that his administration will be characterised by nothing short of policing in line with best global practices, respect for fundamental Human Rights, visibility policing, and a proactive approach to security challenges in the Territory.
