Late CP Odesanya will be missed by all who knew him – Chief Ikanya

The Chairman, Rivers State chapter of All Progressives Congress, APC, Chief (Dr) Davies Ibiamu Ikanya has lamented the sudden demise of Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Francis Odesanya, describing the development as shocking and devastating especially to all those who crossed path with the late CP.

Chief Ikanya stated this in a press release made available to journalists in Port Harcourt Wednesday after the sad news of the death of CP Odesanya broke out.

“It is difficult to imagine who would not feel a deep sense of loss over the death of CP Odesanya given the humility, maturity and professionalism which the late CP displayed on the job.

“Indeed, the sudden death of CP Odesanya came as a huge blow to all especially the political class in Rivers State who have seen and dealt with a number of Police Commissioners in the past but felt the exemplary attributes of CP Odesanya within the short period he served in Rivers State,” Chief Ikanya stated.

Chief Ikanya said that the people of Rivers State especially the political class would miss the late Police Commissioner who displayed uncommon fairness to all irrespective of political affiliation. He prayed God Almighty to grant the soul of late CP Odesanya eternal rest and provide succour and consolation to the family he left behind.

According to Chief Ikanya: “It is my candid prayer that God Almighty would grant the soul of late CP Odesanya eternal rest in His bosom and provide comfort and consolation to his immediate family to bear the irreparable loss.”
