In a country where corruption is perceived a norms, police of such are a rare find.

“I am paid to make lives better, and to give back or to help people is amazing morale,” Dimka said.
He has built his life and work around the belief that a loving home, with loving parents, could be transformative. And yet over and over again he witnessed the limits of that philosophy. But devastating as the case of some oprhans could be, SP Dimka is often felt compelled to step in. He fell in love with every kid orphans who turned up on his doorstep, and he can’t bear the thought of pushing them back. Instead he stretches his salary a little further, adopt them for life and cater for their health, education and wellbeing.
“I wish that I can do more to make them know that they are creative and infinitely valuable. I want to adopt more children as far as God grants me long healthy life and the resources to take care of them,” said Dimka.
He appeal to all well meaning and wealthy Nigerians to always assist the orphans and the less privileged in dere need.

“It is one of the happiest days of my life. For the past 8 years, I celebrate my birthday with children from orphanages, homeless, abandoned widows,” said SP Dimka.
“When I visited some of the ophanages, you can see the joy, the smiles on their faces.
“I think just spending a couple of hours with them, laughing, joking and playing helps them understand that we care. If they grow up in a world where people care about them, it could change their view of the world in a positive way.
“I am very thankful for the giving-heart of my wife,” he said.
“Visiting the orphanage helps strengthen civil-police partner relations and extend a helping hand to the citizens,” he added.
