President Muhammadu Buhari has joined family, friends and associates in mourning the death of former Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mustapha Balogun.

In a condolence message by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina on Friday in Abuja, the president also mourned with the Nigeria Police Force, an institution Balogun spent the better part of his life serving.

Buhari recalled that Balogun, during his tenure as IGP, did his best to ensure that the police performed its statutory responsibilities under a democratic dispensation.

He also said that Balogun’s penchant for boosting the morale of officers and men in the Force had been acknowledged by those who served under him.

According to the president, his thoughts and prayers are with the family, the government and people of Osun, as well as former colleagues of the deceased police chief.

He prayed for the peaceful repose of the soul of the departed.
