CSP TOKUNBO ABANIWONDA
(Crime Fighter Par Excellence)
CSP Tokunbo Abaniwonda is one of the ‘finest’ officers currently being paraded by the Nigeria Police Force. Service excellence,proactiveness and her rapid response capacity when there is distress in her jurisdiction set her apart from her contemporaries.
As a prim and proper woman of substance,She came,saw and is conquering! She is the first woman to emerge as Divisional Police Officer of Ipaja Division,Lagos Command;the first to be posted as O/C Ogijo and DPO,Ijede.
Within one month as DPO,Ijede Division,dreaded armed robbers who came to terrorise Fagbemi Community were empowered,arrested and prosecuted. And in what seems like a culture,she replicated similar exploit in Ipaja under a month of her resumption as DPO of the division when she arrested a one-chance armed robbery gang who were a thorn in the flesh of Ayobo/Ipaja people.She vehemently attained feats that brought the Commissioner of Police,Lagos State for a security submit since the creation of Ipaja Division.
Welcome to the world of Chief Superintendent of Police,CSP Tokunbo Abaniwonda,a pride of women,a feminine stallion,an indefatigable crime burster,investigator,prosecutor,Jewel of inestimable value who has chosen the prestigious job of securing and protecting lives and property through the police force of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Highly educated Abaniwonda is a very experienced ‘Federal Chief’as most gallant CSPs are fondly called. She is in-depth in knowledge,broad in scope and versed in strategies.
She was enlisted into the force in the year 2002 and has since then dispensed quality services in the outside Lagos State;touching her beats as Midas,ensuring that the integrity and game of the force are sustained.It is therefore worthy of mention that CSP Abaniwonda has risen through the rings of the ladder to her present enviable position. She had been Divisional Traffic Officer(DTO);Admin Officer(AO);O/C Human Rights,Panti;DPO Anthony;Ijede etc .
Her gallantry remains a challenge and motivation at the same time and her resilience speaks volumes of her triumphant existence in a male-dominated field;pointers to her great achievements.
At diverse points,she was instrumental to the foiling and arrest of armed robbery syndicates in Ijede Division;the foiling of a serious communal clash between the Hausas and Yorubas in Petu-Oloja,Ijede,ikorodu,Lagos;the stopping of traffic robbery menace at tunnel,under bridge,Anthony,Lagos etc.
Due to Abaniwonda’s zero tolerance for crime,while the DPO at Ijede,she ensured a joint operation with OP MESA and Onyabo to fight cultism to a standstill in that environment;and that phase and era,several armed robbers lost their lives in a shootout with the police before sanity was restored.
No nonsense CSP Abaniwonda while DPO Anthony,nabbed and prosecuted over 10 armed robbers to stamp her authority and conquest over criminality. And here in her present beat in Ayoba,well over 40 cultists operating in Ipaja/Ayobo communityhave been bursted amongst other security successes that emanate from her adherence to the strategic community policing initiative.
With records already hard to surpass,Abaniwonda is presently ensuring relative peace,safety and security in Ipaja Division to the glory of God almighty and to the delight of her CP and sundry superiors.
