​45 Police Officers Involved in the Arrest of Billionaire Kidnapper Evans Get Special Promotion

It was revealed on Thursday by The Police Service Commission (PSC) that 45 officers involved in the successful arrest of notorious kidnap kingpin, Evans, have been granted special promotion. 

A statement by Ikechukwu Ani, a spokesperson for the PSC, said the promotions were ratified today at a plenary presided over by Mike Okiro, chairman of the commission. 

Thirteen of the officers were promoted in acting capacity because they weren’t eligible for substantive promotion, the PSC said. 

The promotions come a year after Evans was arrested in Lagos alongside over 20 suspected members of his gang.  The police have been widely hailed for the operation, which has been described as one of their highest points in recent years.
