Commending ASP Erhabor, Governor Sanwo-Olu said:

“This is our own little response to the very condemnable events that happened over the weekend. In the real heat of provocation, ASP Erhabor displayed high quality of restraint. He displayed calmness and restrained himself from taking laws into his hands. And I think for that little gesture, it is important for us to bring him out so that we also can use him as a testimonial and encouragement for other Police officers to show that indeed they can be civil and that Police are meant to protect our citizens.”
