In 1996 Chioma Ajunwa leapt into the history books inside the Olympic Stadium in Atlanta Georgia, USA .
She beat all others to the Olympic Gold medal of the Women long jump event and became the first Nigerian to win an Olympic Gold Medal.
On arrival in Nigeria , after the Atlanta 96 Games , the Police woman was Celebrated and the then Lagos State Military Administration, Buba Marwa, promised her a 3 Bedroom flat for her feat. The promise went unfulfilled for 25 years .
On Thursday June 24, 2021 Governor Babajide Sanwoolu redeemed the pledge that was made 25 years ago to Olympian Chioma Ajunwa . Ajunwa now a Deputy Commissioner of Police could not contain her joy .
