Anambra CP retires, says ‘I’m going into business to give Dangote run for his money’


The Commissioner of Police in Anambra State, CP Aderemi Adeoye on Saturday had his ceremonial pull out parade from the Nigeria Police Force, to signify his retirement.

During the ceremony which held at the Dr Alex Ekwueme Square in Awka, the commissioner while addressing guests said that throughout the period of his service, he has equipped himself through trainings, both in Nigeria and abroad, including financial education, leading to the founding of an investment club, Alpha Trust Investment Club (ATIC) in 2018.

He said the club currently has investments worth over N20 billion, and that as he retires, he is going into business full time.

According to him, he will give Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, a run for his money.

“I have been through militancy in Niger Delta, Boko Haram in North East, fought IPOB militancy in the South East, and I’m glad that I’m alive today, despite gunfire and bombs we have encountered, I do not have any scar on me.

“I thank the NPF for the opportunity to serve and Nigeria for investing in me through trainings at home and abroad. I have been privileged to be trained in Ghana, England, Israel, California and more.

“I have served abroad in the United Nations, and this career gave me opportunities for self development, and these have prepared me for retirement. It’s been a unique privilege serving in Anambra.

“I’m proud of my men at Anambra State Police Command. You are gallant, heroic and never give up. We didn’t achieve anything through individual efforts but with other sister agencies.

“In 2028, I founded an investment club, Alpha Trust Investment Club (ATIC) Limited. We started it with a modest sum of N54 million, but today we have investments worth over N20 billion. That will be my full time business from Wednesday May 1. We have been investing and now we want to go into full time business and we will in the next 10 years give Dangote a run for his money,” Adeoye said.

Earlier, Anambra State Deputy Governor, Dr Onyekachi Ibezim, praised Adeoye for his efforts in fighting insecurity in the state.

He said: “There’s a time to start and a time to begin and a time to end everything. We knew today would come. The CP came to Anambra and has played his role meritoriously. He came when Governor Chukwuma Soludo was tackling insecurity and people were in the bush fighting lawful citizens.

“Adeoye came in at the same time with his own style and dedication, sincerity of purpose and doggedness and within a short space, Anambra is now calm.
It is not over until it is over and the fight is still sustained.

“If it were in our hands, we will say let this good man continue, because we are happy with his work. A street has been named after him and many awards too. I’m happy to proclaim that you’re now a citizen of Anambra. We wish you well in your future endeavors.”
