BREAKING: Buhari Appoints New Inspector-General Of Police

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of DIG Usman Alkali Baba as the acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP).

Standard News reports that the Deputy Inspector-General (DIG) Baba is set to take over from Mohammed Adamu, who is in Imo state to inspect the damage done to the police command headquarters and the Correctional Center in the state.

Speaking to State House Correspondents on Tuesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, said the appointment takes immediate effect.

Dingyadi noted that the extension of the Adamu’s tenure by the President is to allow enough time to select a new police chief.

Recall that Buhari had on February 4, 2021 extended the tenure of Adamu as the Inspector General of Police (IGP) for three months.

Adamu has, however, spent two months and three days for the extension.
