According to her, “in the discharge of his duties, he exhibited very rare and high degree of humility and compassion as a police officer. Always calm, friendly and very respectful. He approaches everyone with the dignity you deserve as a human being and speaks to you in a calm voice with some stealth that exposes the discipline and training he had garnered over the years but yet humane.
“He on many occasions exhibited compassion and patience as he helped inquiring motorists while being cautious and mindful of his primary mission safety of lives and property. He will never demand for tips or any form of patronage”.
