In my efforts to go looking and analysis on the advantages and in any other case of the ENDSARS Protest, I took time to undergo the Face Ebook web page of Mr. Izeze Ifeanyi among the best Brains within the Pen Enterprise the place I’m certain that I may get one thing extraordinary and certainly I received one thing extraordinary within the story of DSP Garba described in some quarters because the true Hero of the ENDSARS Protest.

Whereas it’s reported that over 17 Police Personnel misplaced their lives throughout this ugly, unhappy and unlucky account of the ENDSARS Protest within the fingers of hoodlums, this new Nigerian Hero not solely confronted these youths however was recommended and praised by the youths of Nigeria

Please, learn the account as I noticed it within the Face Ebook web page of Mr. Izeze Ifeanyi


As an alternative of extortion, he ensures the widespread people are protected and free. He additionally does different issues that has built-in him as a neighborhood chief. As an illustration: Confronted with a debilitating water downside, he mobilised assets via fundraising and constructed a borehole for the neighborhood.

To additional give the youths a way of belonging, he used the most well-liked platform – soccer. He organises soccer competitions for them via which he not solely horns native abilities however counsels them about crimes and criminality emphasising the necessity for them to avoid them.

To additional entrench himself as a folks’s policeman, he threw his doorways extensive open, listened to the folks with ardour and real willingness to assist.

Invite RABIU GARUBA to any native occasion, he’s there. Church dedication, naming ceremony, launching of neighborhood initiatives, he was there.

For individuals who know, FEGGE police station was a infamous enclave. It was the hub of actions in some ways. It was a duplicate of the close by Onitsha Primary Market, with its personal shopping for and promoting actions.

The stakes had been excessive and the engagements fixed sufficient that policemen paid heavy bribes to be posted there, as a result of a policeman who labored there for one yr and didn’t “make it” have to be affected by “ancestral curse.”

However RABIU GARUBA modified all that. He hated extortion and bribery. Oh! What an enemy he will need to have made himself amongst his corrupt people who had been concerned within the bazaar, most of them Igbo officers. Keep in mind RABIU GARUBA shouldn’t be Igbo. But, he solved an issue that had defied a long time.

Now, the RESULT!

Rampaging #EndSARS youths searching for the place to vent their anger arrived. Nearly all his colleagues fled – abandoned, some via the home windows, others scaling the partitions. However not RABIU GARUBA. As an alternative of operating, he determined to satisfy them, as a result of he knew them. They had been his folks.

The impact was magical. Ululation! The anger of the youths remodeled instantly. They noticed him. They knew him. Not as a heartless extortionist or butcher just like the infamous Awkuzu SARS boss, however a direct reverse.

As an alternative of we no go gree ooo we no go gree it turned RABIU GARUBA! We would like GARUBA, we wish GARUBA! The youths turned their anger elsewhere.

Right this moment, the FEGGE police station stands intact. Its survival is image and a message. No pin was damaged no limb was damaged, no one died. Why? RABIU GARUBA!

Sure! These youths could also be daft. However they know what they need. They know their targets. RABIU GARUBA didn’t match into it, as a result of he’s not solely a mannequin – a very good cop, however a very good man.


The person that can save Nigeria lives inside. He’s present in each tribe and faith. It’s solely that the folks have allowed their eyes to be cloaked. The day they permit the size to fall off, they’ll discover him both from the Gwoza Hills, the Olumo Rocks or Ogbunike Caves. They’ll discover him in RABIU GARUBA, the rave of the second, a hero of the #EndSARS motion!


I had trigger to satisfy CSP Rabiu Garba on the Fegge Police station, Onitsha. A shopper of mine had points to clear with them. Sooner or later, I demanded to see the DPO and that was once I got here involved with this man. He already had folks in his workplace however he didn’t preserve me ready somewhat he pleaded with them that he needed to attend to me. All of the folks in his workplace had been Igbos.

I’m Igbo too. You wanted to look at the conviviality. At some extent, I forgot what I got here for. Garba engaged me in an mental voyage from legislation to sociology to philosophy to…title it. On a regular basis, he was relaxed and cheerful and his relaxed temper relaxed me a lot that as I stated, I momentarily forgot what I got here for.

On the finish of the day, with out as a lot as asking for a Kobo, I left the station completely glad. U even ate some candy on his desk. That is one man who needs to be the IGP of Nigeria. I’m not within the least shocked that encomia are pouring out to him, I’m not shocked that he had the arrogance to interface with an offended mob of Igbo youths and merchants within the coronary heart of the IPOB enclave in Onitsha, he being an Hausa police officer. Quite the opposite, an Igbo born OC SARS officer, James Nwafor couldn’t have dared what Garba did even within the midst of his kith and kin.

What that is telling us is that it’s good to be good. Who would have thought that at a time like this, an Hausa police officer from Yobe state, North East Nigeria will douse pressure in Anambra state, South East Nigeria? It’s good to be good. Folks like DSP Garba Rabiu give us hope that there’s nonetheless hope.

I have a good time you my pal. Sooner or later within the very close to future, the place of the Inspector Common of police in Nigeria will probably be received by vote and when that day comes, be assured that you should have my vote and that of my family and all different individuals who I can affect. ✊


I’ll prefer to conclude this treatise on this younger man by quoting Franklin D. Roosevelt who acknowledged, “We now have all the time held to the hope, the idea, the conviction that there’s a higher life, a greater world, past the horizon.”

And Nelson Mandela an Icon and former President of South Africa who with DSP Garba in his thoughts acknowledged, “Our human compassion binds us the one to the opposite – not in pity or patronizingly, however as human beings who’ve learnt easy methods to flip our widespread struggling into hope for the longer term.”

The judgement and approval of this distinctive Police Workplace because the Hero of the ENDSARS Protest is now in your hand to resolve.
