He called on sports enthusiasts within the police to be unrelenting in developing their skills and dauntless in charting new frontiers in the world of sports.

“Abbey, who serves in the Lagos State Police Command, has distinguished herself greatly in the boxing sphere by winning several awards and recommendations as a Boxing Referee at the amateur level.
