Assistant Inspector General (AIG), Mustapha Kamara and other EMB members lauded the coming of the new ISAT personnel and expressed profound appreciations to the outgoing personnel for his enormous contributions.

Inspector General of Police, William Fayia Sellu expressed his profound gratitude to Lieutenant Colonel Rob Browne for his enormous contributions and said he is looking forward to the new men to emulate same.
