The Commissioner of Police, Kwara Command, CP Tuesday Assayomo, has charged the newly promoted officers in the state to be loyal and dedicated to their constitutional duties.
Assayomo gave the task on Friday in Ilorin while decorating 38 Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSPs) now promoted to Superintendent of Police (SP).
He recalled that the Inspector General of Police, Usman Alkali, graciously approved the promotion of 1,939 DSPs to the rank of SPs, among who 38 of the beneficiaries were in Kwara Command.
