IGP Egbetokun Mourns Retired DIG Ibrahim Lamorde

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun on behalf of the Officers and Men of the Nigeria Police Force has deeply regrets to announce the passing of DIG Ibrahim Lamorde (retired), a distinguished officer and an exemplary leader.

According to a press release on Sunday, 26th May 2024 signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said that DIG Lamorde was born on December 20, 1962, in Mubi, Adamawa State and dedicated his life to public service and police, joining the Nigeria Police Force in 1986.

Throughout his illustrious career, DIG Lamorde rose, serving with staunch professionalism. His integrity and dedication were evident in every role he undertook, culminating in his appointment as Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) in 2011. During his tenure at the EFCC, DIG Lamorde was renowned for his steadfast stance against corruption. His leadership led to prosecuting numerous high-profile cases and recovering substantial sums of looted funds.

Upon concluding his service at the EFCC in 2015, DIG Lamorde continued his distinguished career in the Nigeria Police Force, eventually retiring as a Deputy Inspector General of Police in 2021 as the pioneer DIG for the Force Intelligence Department (FID). His career was characterized by an unyielding commitment to justice and the principles of professional policing.

The entire Nigeria Police Force mourns the loss of DIG Ibrahim Lamorde. His legacy as a dedicated officer and an anti-corruption crusader will continue to inspire future generations of police officers. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, and colleagues during this challenging time. May his soul rest in peace.
