Adamu Out: Buhari To Name New IGP




President Muhammadu Buhari is set to name a new Inspector General of Police (IGP), who will replace Mohammed Adamu.

Adamu retired today Monday, February 1, after a meritorious service of  35 years in the force.

The situation has thus seen anxiety in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) headquarters.

Adamu who is the 20th IGP the country has produced was enlisted on February 2, 1986.

He was appointed as the police boss by President Muhammadu Buhari, replacing Ibrahim Kpotun Idris of Niger State on January 15, 2019.

Others who will also resign are former chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), DIG Ibrahim Lamorde, DIG Michael Anthony Ogbizi, and AIG Mohammad Mustafa.

There have however been speculations that Adamu’s tenure may be extended by the president in order to allow him to execute some reforms in the police force.

The president has on many occasions expressed trust and confidence in Ibrahim’s leadership of the force and has shunned demands for his sack despite several security challenges.

Adamu is expected to hand over to senior in rank including AIG Moses Jitiboh who may be announced the new sheriff of the force.
