The acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has retained CP Frank Mba as the spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force.
Naija News gathered that the new police chief has also appointed CP Idowu Owohunwa as his Principal Staff Officer (PSO).
Meanwhile, IGP Baba has met with police commanders in charge of the South-East zone over the security crisis in the region.
In a statement on Friday released by the force spokesman, Frank Mba, the meeting was aimed at discussing security issues affecting the two regions of the country in order to resolve them.
Baba said there were critical security situations in the South-East and South-South geopolitical zones of the country that must be addressed urgently.
The police chief assured Nigerians that the commanders will go back to their zones to implement the outcomes.
The IGP said the challenges would require the force to rejig its operational strategies to ensure that the issues were nipped in the bud immediately.
He said calling a larger meeting of all Commissioners of Police and other senior officers would not be right at the moment because of COVID-19 protocols.
Baba said, “It is not like we do not have problems in other geopolitical zones of the country, but we have to address them one after the other.”
