HOGAN GUARD OPERATIVE
LOCATION: Iwofe, Eagle Cement Branch, Port Harcourt.
AWARD: Best Security Guard, Access Bank 2016 (Nationwide)

I was approached by some people including a MOPOL guarding the branch of the Access Bank where I was posted. They discussed their plan of the robbery and promised me a huge reward that will change my life. On issues of security and for safety of one’s life, one has to be tactical, so I said it is ok. I also had at the back of my mind the training given to us in Hogan Guards on professional guarding and integrity.
On the day of the event, I went inside a toilet to make some calls and report the plan and that was how policemen foiled the robbery and the armed robbers and the MOPOL were arrested.

CHIME ERIK
LOCATION: Access Bank, Port Harcourt
AWARD: Best Security Guard for Access Bank (Nationwide) 2017

The Access Bank gave me the award of Best Security Guard for 2017 because of several recommendations made to the bank concerning me by customers including foreigners. The bank did a customer satisfaction poll and majority of the customers who participated in the poll wrote about my cautious response to customers, my style of approach to complaints and diligence during the banking hours. I was happy with this award and I have our company Hogan Guards to thank for the training they have given us on customer relationship and diligence.

 

HOGAN GUARD OPERATIVE
LOCATION: Industrial Estate, Ogun State
AWARD: Commendation, 2019

A fellow security guard came to me and requested that we should connive and steal electric cables worth millions of Naira. I was surprised he could hatch that kind of plan because we the operatives have never suffered ill-treatment from our Management and we have always had our salaries paid promptly. Anyway, I carried along with the plan but reported to the soldiers deployed to the facility. The soldiers asked me to record our future conversations which I did.
On the day of the robbery, I had to take part just to ensure the culprit would be caught red-handed. He was caught and handed over to the MOPOL who already laid ambush.
I am happy I was able to save my company, Hogan Guards millions of Naira in damages and a bad reputation.

SULE OCHENI
Location: Fidelity Bank, Ladipo, Lagos
AWARD: THE Most Outstanding Security Guard for Two Years In A Row (2016 and 2017)

I won the award of the MOST OUTSTANDING GUARD FOR TWO YEARS IN A ROW (2016 and 2017) based on a customer poll conducted by the bank. The bank has always considered their customers the most important part of their business and so customer interaction and relationship are very important. Since I am representing a company (Hogan Guards), I have to always give a good account of myself. The bank may have used other security companies in some of their other branches, but they considered me, operative of Hogan Guards for the award because of how I handle my job of relating with customers and ensuring effective security guarding.

 

WILLIAM OKOGBUE
LOCATION: ECOBANK, Abuja
AWARD: Integrity Award

I was attached to the ECOBANK, Wuse Zone 4 branch in Abuja. On July 16, 2019, during my security surveillance, I saw a small bag. As you know, we are trained to be conscious of everything around us including items that are not attended to. I picked the bag and I wasn’t sure what was inside, it could even be a bomb. I took it to the toilet to see what was inside. I locked the toilet door and behold the content was dollar notes. I counted it and it was 10,000 dollars. I was thinking in my mind, could it be fake dollars? I checked again, it was genuine dollar bills and what came to my mind immediately was that the money must be returned to the owner. Integrity is more important than temporary pleasure. I later handed it over to the cash officer who handed it over to the owner when he came looking for it.
Though temptation in such instances is very strong, I can never do anything that will tarnish the image of my organization, the organization that feeds me and sees to my welfare.
I thank God that I was not influenced by any temptation because the recognition and reward I received from the bank and my company Hogan Guards for my gesture are more satisfying.
