The late Deputy Commissioner of Police Isikeli Ligairi was described as a fearless and honest police officer.

Delivering the eulogy on behalf of the Fiji Police Force at the late Deputy Commissioner’s Homecoming service at the Seventh Day Adventist Church in Vuci Road this morning, was the Chief Administration Officer Assistant Commissioner of Police Itendra Nair.

“I have known the late DCP for the last 32 years and our young as Police Constables were spent together in Labasa where as part of his Cadet Program he was serving in Traffic branch and I as a CID officer”.

“He would spare no one when it came to booking. He would research and came up with offences unknown of, which is why he was fearless, honest and fair in his day to day activities”.

The late Deputy Commissioner’s career began in 1986 when he was enlisted into the Fiji Police Force in the Basic Recruits Force Programme. He then decided to try out the banking and finance and spent three years with the National Bank of Fiji. He later realized that his passion was in policing. He then rejoined the Fiji Police in 1989 and was posted to the Central Police Station and to the Uniform Branch in Savusavu in the same year.

ACP Nair said the late DCP Ligairi was a loyal servant to the people of Fiji.

“As an honorable servant, he was awarded the Fiji Police Medal, Fiji Republic Medal

UNMIL Observer Medal, 25th Independence Anniversary Medal, Fiji Police Long Service Medal and the Fiji Police Overseas Medal”.

“He was a man of intelligence and brilliance, and continued to pursue further in his academic journey and thirst for knowledge”.

The late Mr. Ligairi hails from Nadogo in Saqani and Vasu to Dreketi, Macuata and is survived by his wife and six (6) children.

The late DCP Ligairi was laid to rest at the Nasinu Cemetery.
