DSP Timothy Adeola Falowo, the Divisional Police Officer in charge of Ire Akari police station has been in the news for some time now as a result of his miraculous escape from death when a big tree in the premises of the station uprooted itself and fell on his office. The incident which took place around 9am on Monday during a rainfall drew a lot of sympathizers, who saw his escape as the act of God. They described him as a wonderful man, who does not take undue advantage of anyone because of his position as a senior police officer.

 A man among the visitors at the station painted the DPO as a man with the fear of God and said he is not surprised that God kept him despite the havoc wrecked by the fallen tree.  According to an eyewitness who said the whole incident was just like a film show, admitted it was indeed an act of God that DPO was alive. “I was at the counter when I saw the tree uprooted and landed on the DPO’s office. I was so afraid that I did not know what to do immediately.”
