The Police Public Relations Committee (PCRC) described the death of its National Treasurer, Mr Saliu Mohammed, as a great loss.
The PCRC said the death was not only to his immediate family and Kogi, but to the entire country.
This is contained in a condolence message signed by the National Chairman of the organisation, Dr Faruk Maiyama, and issued to newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday.
He described the deceased as an Iconic educationist, a reputable banker and a retired civil servant of an impeccable character.
Maiyama said: “Through his passion for peace, he volunteered with the Nigerian Red Cross Society and after a keen evaluation, he decided security comes before peace.
“In 2005, he joined the Police Community Relations Committee due to his priority for security.
“He served in various capacities at the Kogi state level, gaining more knowledge and understanding of the system.
“Yearning for more impact, he moved to explore national functions where he impacted, without a doubt in his capacity as National Treasurer.
“Prince Saliu was almost a perfectionist as he did everything on time and never left any job halfway.
“This was a trait that even reflected in his serving God as he was the Secretary to the General Overseer of his Church, till his departure.”
The statement said that the deceased was born on Oct. 1, 1960, died on Sept. 30 , and was laid to rest on Oct. 1.
He is survived by a wife, children, a grand child and many relatives.
