Following the redeployment of Joe Nwachukwu Enwonwu by the Nigeria Police authorities, the new Commissioner of Police in the person of Ngozi Vivian Onadeko was last week announced as the commander of policemen in Oyo State.

The new CP has since then officially resumed office at Eleyele, Ibadan where she solicited constant dissemination of credible information from the people of the state to enable the police to provide adequate security of lives and property.

For the record: PMParrot presents to you background information about the new CP, how she rose from Cadet Assistant Superintendent to her present position of Commissioner.

Ngozi Vivian Onadeko graduated from Imo State University, Imo State, where she bagged BSc. (Hons) degree in Sociology in 1985. She later proceeded to the University of Lagos, Akoka, Lagos State where she also bagged Master degree (MSc.) in Criminology.

She was appointed into the Nigeria Police Force as a Cadet Assistant Superintendent of Police (POLAC/ Cadet ASP Course 15) on 15/03/1988 and was trained at the Nigeria Police Academy Annex, Kaduna State between 1988- 1989.

She has served in various administrative and operational capacities including Crime and Staff Officer SOI, SOJ between 1989- 1993 in Imo State Police Command.

She was 2I/C Command/Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of ‘Administration’ Delta State Command, between 2016- 2019 from where she proceeded on course to the National Defence College on 1st September, 2019.

Sequel to her promotion to the enviable rank of Commissioner of Police on 21st December, 2019, she was posted to the Department of Training and Development, Force Headquarters, Abuja as CP Training.

The Commissioner of Police has attended various on-the-job courses during her career, which includes; Advanced Detective Course (ADC) 1999, Operational Leadership Command Course (OLCC) 2005, Tactical Leadership Command Course (TLCC) 2009, Strategic Leadership Command Course (SLCC) 2015, all at the reputed Police Staff College Jos, Plateau State and National Defence College (NDC) Abuja,

She is equally a member of professional institutions, which include; International Association of Women Police (IAWP) and International Association of Chief of Police (IACP), United States of America (USA). CP. Ngozi Onadeko is married with children.

Apparently, Ngozi, a thorough-bred professional who distinguished herself in all the places she has served is the first female Commissioner of Police to be posted to Oyo State.

Consequently, all the experiences she has gathered over the years shall be brought to Oyo State to consolidate the existing security apparatus.
