The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc(+), NPM, fdc, congratulates the newly elected President of the Crime Reporters Association of Nigeria (CRAN), Olalekan Olabulo of the Tribune Newspaper, and other elected Executive Officials at the Association’s general elections held on Friday 6th May, 2022 in Lagos State.
The IGP notes that the new officials are individuals who have dignified and distinguished themselves in their various media fora, adding that the election is a recognition of their years of selfless service and commitment to value.

The IGP while assuring of his administration’s commitment to leave no stone unturned in the fight against crimes and criminality in the country, urges the new officials to work collectively and closely with the Nigeria Police Force in ensuring a balanced reportage while the Force collaborates with CRAN for a safe, secured and peaceful country in general.
