Senior Lawyers Knock Buhari Over Extension Of IGP Adamu’s Tenure

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, on Tuesday ordered the redeployment of the Enugu State Commissioner of Police, Suleiman Balarabe.

This was disclosed in a statement sent to Naija News and signed by Police spokesperson, DCP Frank Mba.

The statement revealed that Balarabe was redeployed to the Force Intelligence Bureau (FCID) Abuja, as the CP in-charge of Intelligence, while CP Ahmad Abdulrahman was sent to Enugu State Command to replace him as the Commissioner in charge.

It reads: “CP Ahmad Abdulrahman holds double Masters Degrees – one in Criminal Justice and another in Conflict, Peace & Strategic Studies, both from the Kaduna State University.

“A graduate of Political Science & Administration from the University of Sokoto, CP Ahmad also holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Corruption Studies from the University of Hong Kong.

“Until his recent posting, CP Ahmad was the Commissioner of Police in charge of Intelligence at the FCID, Abuja. He has held many command positions across the Federation, viz. Kaduna, Bayelsa and Ekiti Commands.

“His posting as the CP Enugu State is predicated upon his action-oriented approach to work, his track record of outstanding leadership and interpersonal relations.

“The IGP has charged the CP to bring to bear his wealth of experience, leveraging on the Force policy on Community Policing and Intelligence-driven crime-fighting strategies towards overhauling the security architecture of the coal-rich State.

“The IGP also enjoins the people of the State to partner with the Police and accord the CP maximum cooperation in his efforts at revamping the security situation in the State.

“The posting is with immediate effect.”
