President Muhammadu Buhari has consented to the appointment of Adamu Mohammed as acting Inspector General of Police (IGP).
Mohamed was the commissioner of police in Enugu state, and before his appointment as the acting IGP, he was serving at the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, near Jos.
The new Acting IGP Mohammed, hails from Nasarawa state and was a one-time deputy commissioner of police in Ekiti state. Also, he had served at the Interpol before he climbed to the rank of assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG).
Recall that there had been speculations on the plans to extend Ibrahim Idris’ tenure as the IGP but opposition parties kicked against such alleged plans. Mohammed’s appointment as the new IGP will certainly lay the speculations to rest.
It was learnt that the outgoing IGP who is due to retire soon, had been taking out his personal effects from the office since Friday.
