Disu is respected amongst Lagosians for the professionalism of the RRS.

His model of policing is largely predicated on the principle of ‘policing by consent’ with emphasis on the 4Es of engaging, educating, explaining and enforcing the law. The men are cordial and tactical in their delivery. During the EndSARS protests against police brutality in 2020, Disu reportedly released his Command’s ambulances to help protesters who need medical care.
