"Everytime I pass by Sabo, Yaba, I can't help but notice this Police woman 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. At times I hear her loudly prompting the kids to hurry as their resumption time is almost up. I wish I knew her name though," he wrote.

Oso urged the Nigerian police to take a cue from the policewoman, maintaining that the role of a police officer should also include inspiring the citizenry and also to make people love the uniform.

"This is the standard and should be encouraged by the instance of reward for followup emulators with the view that doing the right and correct actions comes with rewards. The statuesque is not encouraging hence the reason why some of our officers indulgence in bribery and currupt practices because they feel disgruntled and unhappy."

Engr. Desmond Ezeugwu said:

"Even as a policewoman, it shows she is a good mother and model for all women. My advice is when next you pass Sabo, try and get her name so we can make her go viral for the right reasons. #GoodPolicewoman@SaboYaba. #Modelmother."
