Aina, who serves in the Lagos State Police Command, has distinguished herself greatly in the boxing sphere by winning several awards and commendations.

The statement said: ”The I-G, who intends to receive the champion in Nigeria on arrival soon, commended the cop for her courage and giant strides in making the nation and the Nigeria Police Force proud.

” In the same vein, the I-G called on sports enthusiasts, within the Force to be unrelenting in developing their skills and dauntless in charting new frontiers in the world of sports.
