The IGP assured the nation that the posting and redeployment of Senior Police Officers, which is regular in order to align with the Force’s policy on strategic human capacity deployment, will further help in driving the IGP’s policing vision targeted at improving policing services across the country.
He said: “Similarly, the Force wishes to urge members of the public to disregard false, unfounded, and misleading news being peddled that the former Commissioner of Police in charge of Kano State, CP Abubakar Lawal, fdc, was redeployed from Kano on allegations of corruption. This is to re-emphasise that posting in the Force is a normal routine geared towards strengthening human capacity and knowledge diffusion for the betterment of the Force”.
The posting and redeployment of the Senior Police Officers, Adejobi said is with immediate effect.
