Navy Capt. Aondowase Mnguve, the Commandant of the Nigerian Navy Centre for Education and Training Technology, has described the death of ex-Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Tafa Balogun, as a colossal loss.
Mnguve stated this on Friday in Ile-Ife in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
He said that Nigeria and Nigerians would greatly miss the late Balogun, saying his death was a great loss to the country.
According to him, people of Balogun’s calibre ought to live much longer for younger security personnel to tab from their fountains of knowledge.
Mnguve said Balogun was well trained and had been assisting colleagues professionally, noting that his death would create a vacuum that would be difficult to fill.
Also, Toyin Odetoyinbo, an indigene of Ila town, has said that the death of the former IGP came as a rude shock to the people of the ancient town.
Odetoyinbo said that Ila indigenes would miss the late Balogun because of the great impact he made on the growth and development of the town.
He pointed out that it was through the influence of the late IGP that a Police College was sited in Ila.
Odetoyinbo implored Nigerians to behave as they would account for their deeds before their creator.
