"Every time I pass by Sabo, Yaba, I can't help but notice this Policewoman who would always make corrections on students who aren't neatly and properly dressed. Many times she goes as far as dressing them up as seen in these pictures."

A Nigerian, Olusegun Abisoye who commended the efforts of the female officer described her as a firm mother in uniform.

"A firm mother in uniform! She treats those kids like her own. That's how we were raised. The entire community pitched in to raise each child.
"You know that the 'all-seeing eye of the community' sees you and the cane can come out even in your parents' absence. Appreciation to her!"
