“If your wife provokes you and you want to punish her cheat with her sister or relative and make her to find out, there is nothing more painful to them like cheating with their blood, they may not care if you cheat outside.

⛔⛔⭐⭐⭐I NEARLY CRIED YESTERDAY WHEN I HEARD WHAT HAPPEN AT FEGGE POLICE STATION AND HOW THE YOUTH RESPONDED TO DPO RABIU GARBA⭐⭐⭐⛔⛔

A man who never put tribalism, religion or differences in his work…. True to his calling to serve our nation without influence of any politician. Not an Igbo man but he speaks Igbo in a way you will be mesmerized and full of laughter whenever he speaks.. He will tell you “Nwannah why disobeying the law?”
People say police is not your friend but in this man I disagree with that notion. In him, i immensely believe that police is a friend when you meet the good type…. The person I am talking about is my Honorable CSP. RABIU GARBA, the DPO of Fegge Police Station.

Yesterday the youth was rampaging looking for Police Station to burn down. When they troop to his Fegge Police Station with gallons of fuel and weapons, most of his men was grip with fear, Behold !, when he came out, the Chants of the angry youths Change from
” We no go agree oh we no go agree oh” to
“DPO Garba you be our friend,
DPO Garba You be our man”

He addressed then properly, lectured them all and changed their perspective towards embracing calmness.. If you know him well you will know he can lecture very well from every angles of courses, law to Biology , physics to Science, religion to culture, he is the master of all… We fondly call him Professor Rabiu, Onye Nkuzi. Tears nearly fall from my eyes, tears of Joy and appreciation of a good man still serving and existing in Police.

This is a Police man i have ever see who believe that hardworking pays. He is a police man and a Farmer as well. He is a Police man and a Civil Engineer. He is a Police man and a Lecturer as well…

To me, I am encouraging all police men and woman to emulate this Young man and learn from his Public relation skill. Because I strongly believe Public relationship should be practiced to serve the public interest, to develop mutual understanding between organizations, the neighborhood and their publics.

As a Psychologist, i have noticed that without publicity there can be no public support, and without public support every nation must decay.”

DPO Rabiu Garba we all know was the man who single handedly build a Borehole water for the people of Fegge Where his station is situated without donations from the public. If i lie verify from anyone you know living in fegge.

He also Organized Sports event for the youth at fegge Stadium where he normally engaged them in Table Tenis playing competition after work.. He walks among all without gun, knife or tear gas because he does his work diligently without corruption. So no fear of the mob.

He attends many church events he is been invited for around onitsha which shows his sense of unity.

When police do bad we mock them when we see one doing good pls my brothers and sister let us encourage that one as to lift his or her spirit to do more because ndi ba anyi is na Etoo dike na nkem omeru omekwa ozo….

DPO Rabiu Garba anyi Oha nile. No wonder people once cried when you wanted to leave to another Station. How i wish we have thousands of police men and women like you, the Police institution would have been so harmonized…..keep up the good work. Good market sells itself in the market…

No wonder Odumeje cherish you so much.

Thank you once again for the way you handled the youth matter yesterday which resulted to zero casualties at Fegge District…

Honourable Ozoigbondu na Umuoji. ( Odoakpa ward 7 Youth Mobilizer and Organizer)

Pls read and Share to appreciate a good work.

When Mary was scared and asked You how, You gave her more clarifications.
When You saw that Leah was unloved, You opened her womb. And she had a baby.
When You saw Hagar was despised, You opened her eyes. And she saw a well of water.

When Adam ate the fruit, You drove him out.
When David got Bathsheba pregnant, You killed the baby.
When Zachariah questioned You, You made him dumb.
When Uzzah tried to save the ark, You struck him dead.

Esau was older. Jacob was blessed.
Aaron spoke better. Moses was leader.
Reuben was first born. Joseph was chosen.
Manasseh was a cool dude. Ephraim was picked.

Saul was a rebel, You made Paul out of him.
Job couldn’t hurt a fly, You played poker with his life.
Peter talked a mile a minute, You gave him a second chance.
Rahab couldn’t keep her legs closed, she made Christ’s family tree.

You asked Noah to build an ark.
You told Hosea to marry a whore.
You made Isaiah preach naked.
You watched Job go bankrupt.

A raven fed Elijah.
A donkey scolded Balaam.
A fish swallowed Jonah.
But the lions couldn’t hurt Daniel.

You permitted Bubu to win.
You did nothing about Bayo’s tears.
You gave Tolani a 7th chance.
You called Ayesha’s boy home.

Indescribable! Indisputable!
Un-figureoutable. Un-Putinaboxable.
You are God all by Yourself.
You can’t be explained.
You can’t be contained.
You are God. All by Yourself.

God. All by Yourself.
