The Inspector-General of Police, Dr Kayode Adeolu Egbetokun, has described DIG Ibrahim Lamorde (retired), as a distinguished officer and an exemplary leader who served with all diligence in the Nigeria Police Force.

The IGP gave the eulogy on behalf of the officers and men of the police force while announcing Lamorde’s demise officially in a statement by the Force spokesman, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi on Sunday, May 26.

He said that DIG Lamorde, who was born on December 20, 1962, in Mubi, Adamawa State, dedicated his life to public service and police, joining the Nigeria Police Force in 1986.

IGP Egbetokun stated further that the DIG Lamorde rose through the ranks, serving with staunch professionalism throughout his illustrious career.

The police chief said: His (Lamorde) integrity and dedication were evident in every role he undertook, culminating in his appointment as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in 2011.

During his tenure at the EFCC, DIG Lamorde was renowned for his steadfast stance against corruption.

“His leadership led to the successful prosecution of numerous high-profile cases and the recovery of substantial sums of looted funds.”

He added: “Upon concluding his service at the EFCC in 2015, DIG Lamorde continued his distinguished career in the Nigeria Police Force, eventually retiring as a Deputy Inspector General of Police in 2021 as the pioneer DIG for the Force Intelligence Department (FID).

“His career was characterized by an unyielding commitment to justice and the principles of professional policing.

“The entire Nigeria Police Force mourns the loss of DIG Ibrahim Lamorde. His legacy as a dedicated officer and an anti-corruption crusader will continue to inspire future generations of police officers.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and colleagues during this challenging time. May his soul rest in peace.”
