A female Superintendent of Police, SP Phoebe Niyel, attached to the Eagle Net Special Squad of the Delta State Police Command, has pulled out of service after 35 years of meritorious service to the Nigeria Police Force.
The development caused the Eagle Net Special Squad to organize a get together to honour the retiring officer in appreciation for her diligence and dedication to duty.
Speaking on the occasion, the Commander of the Squad, SP Usman Dimka, said he was happy to have worked with SP Phoebe, whom he described as a woman of substance and an epitome of womanhood.
SP Dimka stated that if more women like Phoebe Niyel were in the police service, the Force would have attained a greater height, adding that the retiring SP was a sound operational woman, a detective and a very loyal police officer.
He prayed for her, wished her well in her future endeavors and said the Eagle Net Special Squad would miss her role as a mother to operatives of the Squad.
Responding, retired SP Phoebe said she was overwhelmed by the extent of love shown her by her former colleagues, adding that the package came to her as a surprise.
She reflected on her days at the Eagle Net Special Squad, saying that she enjoyed every bit of her stay in the unit, as it was like a family.
Phoebe thanked the Squad Commander, SP Usman Dimka, for his large heartedness and leadership qualities, which made the Eagle Net Special Squad the envy of all, promising to remain a member of the family even in retirement.
The highlight of the occasion was the presentation of a Sienna Bus, a cheque for one million naira, among other gifts, to retired SP Phoebe.
