History Made As Nigerian Police Officer Simon Asamber Lough Becomes SAN

Simon Asamber Lough, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), has made history by becoming the first serving Nigerian police officer to be awarded the distinguished status of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN).

ACP Lough is currently assigned to the Nigeria Police Force Legal Department, Louis Edet House, Force Headquarters in Abuja, the country’s capital.

The Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee (LPPC) promoted Lough, a quintessential son of Tiv country, among 71 other lawyers (including 10 academics and 62 advocates) after its 149th plenary session on October 21, 2021.

He was one of the 61 Chief Superintendents of Police (CSP) promoted to the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) in March during the 26th Plenary Meeting of the Police Service Commission (PSC) presided over by the then Chairman of the Commission, Retired Inspector-General of Police Mike Okiro.

The achievement of ACP Lough who has represented the Police Force as a prosecution counsel in many high-profile cases has singled him out as a diligent agitator for justice and a strong upholder of human rights.

Similarly, 52-year-old Lough’s elevation is also a boost to the dented image of the Force as it is would serve as a motivation for more lawyer-cops to strive.
