The Inspector-General of Police,  IGP Usman Baba, has decorated Kehinde Longe and his wife, Yetunde Longe, as Commissioners of Police.

The couple, along with 15 other Commissioners of Police, were recently promoted by the Police Service Commission (PSC).

The husband and wife were course mates who joined the Nigeria Police Force on the same day, according to the Force PRO, CP Frank Mba, who read their citations.

The IGP also conferred doctorates on 22 other senior police officers, including two deputy inspectors-general of police (DIGs).

DIG Zaki Ahmed and DIG Johnson Babatunde Kokumo are the two DIGs.
