August 07, (THEWILL) – The remains of a former Inspector-General of Police, Tafa Balogun, have been buried in Ila Orangun, his home town.

Balogun, who was the 21st indigenous IGP, was buried on Saturday, amid tears.

Sympathisers thronged the burial which was conducted in accordance with Islamic rites.

The Inspector General of Police, Alkali Baba Usman, was represented by the Osun State Commissioner of Police, Wale Olokode, at the funeral.

Representatives of Osun state governments were also among the sympathisers.

The current IGP had earlier opened a condolence register at the Force Headquarters in Abuja and he was the first to sign it.

THEWILL had reported that Balogun, Nigeria’s 21st Inspector-General of Police, died on Thursday, August 4, at the age of 74.

Balogun was born on August 8, 1947, and was named the Inspector-General of Police on March 6, 2002, the position he occupied until 2005, when he was sacked by former President, Olusegun Obasanjo.
