The Police headquarters has announced a redeployment exercise of key officers.
In the exercise, the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, on Tuesday, ordered the redeployment of Abutu Yaro to Imo as the state’s new Commissioner of Police.
This may not be unconnected with rising insecurity in Imo and the South East region,
The IGP described Yaro as an operationally-minded cop and a fellow of the National Defence College and the immediate-past Commissioner of Police, Zamfara State Command.
Yaro takes over from CP Nasiru Mohammed who has been redeployed to Western Port Authority, Lagos.
CP Hussaini Rabiu emerged as the new Zamfara State Commissioner of Police.
Police Force spokesman, Frank Mba, listed other Commissioners of Police affected by the new postings to include: CP John Amadi, who was posted from Western Port Authority, Lagos, to Airport Police Command, Ikeja.
Mba said, “CP Anderson Bankole who is now in charge of the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU), Ikoyi, Lagos; and CP Joe Nwachukwu Enwonwu, posted to the Department of Finance and Administration (DFA), Force Headquarters, Abuja as the Commissioner of Police, DFA.
“The IGP, while charging the newly posted officers to bring to bear their professional experience in improving policing and restoring public confidence in their new places of assignment, assured citizens of the determination of the Force under his leadership to upscale its operations, improve public safety and tackle all forms of crimes in the country”.
