The Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba has approved posting and redeployment of eight Commissioners of Police to state commands and formations across the country for operational and administrative effectiveness.
A statement issued by the Force Spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi, on Thursday confirmed the development.
The statement said the exercise was done in line with the Manpower Development Policy of the Force, adding that it would further improve policing services across the country.
It said newly posted/redeployed senior officers are: CP Gombe Command – Etim Effiom, CP Kano Command – Mamman Dauda, CP Bauchi Command – CP Aminu Alhassan and CP CPTU Staff College Jos – Babatunde Ishola.
According to the statement others are CP X-SQUAD FCID Annex Lagos – Mamman Sanda, CP FCID Annex Gombe – John Babangida, CP Safer Highway FHQ Abuja – Akinwale Adeniran and CP DFA FCID Annex Lagos – Abubakar Lawal.
The statement also dispel the claim that the former CP in Kano was redeployed on allegations of corruption.
”Similarly, the Force wishes to urge members of the public to disregard false, unfounded, and misleading news being peddled that the former Commissioner of Police in charge of Kano State, CP Abubakar Lawal, was redeployed from Kano on allegations of corruption.
“This is to re-emphasise that postings in the Force are a normal routine geared towards strengthening human capacity and knowledge diffusion for the betterment of the Force,” the statement said.
