Will always be remembered for his professionalism with which he dealt with the notorious armed robbery gang led by late Anini in Benin City. This gang gave IBB's government in which the late IG served, real tough skin to behold to the extent that he was 'summarily ordered' by IBB at one of the AFRC's meeting to "fetch Anini dead or alive before the next meeting". And, true to gallantry, Anini and his gang including some policemen who aided and abetted, met their waterloo shortly after. The 'sensibility-insult method' applied by Anini via the indiscriminate 'spraying' of the naira notes on Benin City streets and roads which actually diverted the masses' attention who rather than give information for their arrest concerned themselves with picking money on the roads, could not deter Etim Inyang and his men. They dealt decisively with the gang and he (IG) was publicly acknowledged. Adieu, Sir Etim Okon Inyang! Lest I forget, he did very well as Commissioner in both old Bendel and Kano States respectively.

It remains on record that the evil genius, who was Head of State at that time, cunningly ended the glorious career of Sir Inyang in 1986 by publicly asking him a simple but loaded question: "My friend where is Anini"?

No Sir, he lived in the Nigeria of our dreams. My mum told me of how she reported a carpenter to the police who ran away with money which the poor civil servant had paid to build in the early 70s and the police wrote him, he sent a police wagon from Lagos because my mum had just had a baby and they went to the edge of this country to pick up the carpenter. They stationed a police man until the man went to the bush to collect wood and make the woodwork for the roof and doors for the house. I heard this when I was a child. May God help us with this crop of police who pointedly tell you there is no fuel in their car so no investigation. They exploit you to death before they claim to help you. Fare well ette.

He resigned when Babangida famously asked him "where is Anini?"
During his last days as IGP, Anini messed our police up until a new IGP came and caught Anini.
Goodnight sir.
RIP
