The immediate past Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba, has been inducted as a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Local Government Public Administration, having concluded the Senior Executive Course (SEC) 44 of the National Institute of Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, Jos.

The National Association of Online Security News Publishers (NAOSNP) learnt that the induction ceremony took place at the NIPSS auditorium on Sunday.

CP Mba, reputed to be one of the best spokespersons to have emanated from the Nigerian Police Force, undertook the study about three months ago, and excelled, graduating with honours, and being inducted in an elaborate ceremony.

Mba, alongside five other senior police officers were nominated by the Inspector -General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, in February 2022, for the course.

Others are: AIG Aisha Abubakar Baju, who was Head of Police Veterinary and Force Animal Branch; former Director, Peace Keeping Operations Department, CP Sadiq Abubakar; former Commissioner of Police, Yobe State Police Command, CP Abubakar Sahabo; CP Ebong E. Ebong of the Department of Operations, Force Headquarters and CP Arungwa of the Department of Logistics & Supply.

The officer, who is touted as a thoroughbred professional, accepted to go for the course, amid pressure to reject it. He, however, remains till date, the longest serving FPRO in Nigeria.

CP Mba is a native of Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu State. The intelligent officer had his basic secular education before proceeding to the Nigeria Police Academy, Kano where he graduated from the academy as the best cadet inspector in academics in 1993.
