Usman Alkali Baba, who is the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), has ordered the Deputy Inspectors-General of Police (DIGs), Assistant Inspectors-General of Police (AIGs), and Commissioners of Police (CPs) to move to different departments, commands, and formations.

That fits perfectly with his strategy for human resource development, which emphasises fitting people with the right skills into open positions.

Muyiwa Adejobi said in a statement on Tuesday that DIG Danmallam Mohammed had been sent to the Department of Finance and Administration.

AIG Hafiz M. Inuwa has been sent to take over as DIG Department of Training and Development, and AIG Aji A. Janga has been sent to take over as DIG Department of Research and Planning.

AIG Adeleke A. Bode is now in charge as the DIG, Department of Operations. AIG Habu Sani Ahmadu is now the Force Secretary, and AIG Shuaya’u Lafia Abdulyari is in charge of the Force Intelligence Bureau at Force Headquarters in Abuja.

CP Jonathan Towuru is now in charge of AIG Zone 6 Calabar, and CP Matthew Akinyosola is now in charge of the AIG Police Mobile Force.

Also, CP Sylvester A. Alabi will take over as AIG for Zone 2 in Lagos. CP Akande Sikiru Kayode will now be AIG for Zone 11 in Osogbo, and CP Abimbola Adebola Shokoya will be AIG for Zone 17 in Akure.

The IGP also said that CPs would be sent to different places. Now, CP Adebola A. Hamzat will be in charge of Adamawa State, and CP Emeka Frank Mba will be in charge of Ogun State.

Also, CP Suleiman A. Yusuf is now in charge as CP Taraba State. CP Idowu Owohunwa is now the new CP for Lagos State, and CP Faleye E.S. Olaleye is now in charge as CP Ebonyi State.

So, the IGP has told the newly posted officers to get to work right away to ensure that his administration’s mission, vision, and policy statements are followed well in terms of fighting crime, working with the public, and keeping people safe.

He also asked the public for help and cooperation so that the newly posted senior officers could do their jobs as well as possible.
