I wanted to stay mute on the news about the newly appointed acting Inspector General of police by President Buhari, a few days ago, my aim was to watch as events unfold, however the AIG has made a shocking move today…
The Police Service Commission has approved the retirement of 21 Assistant Inspectors-General of Police who were senior to the new acting IG, Idris Okpotim Ibrahim, before his appointment.
With this retrenchment, majority of the experienced officers in the Force may have been swept off.
The affected AIGs include, Bala Hassan; Yahaya Ardo; Irmiya Yarima; Danladi Mshebwala; Tambari Mohammed ; Bala Magaji Nasarawa; MUsa Abdulsalam; Adisa Bolanta and Mohammed Gana.
Also affected by the retrenchment exercise were Umaru Manko; Lawal Tanko; Olufemi Adenike; Johnson Ogunsakin; Adenrele Shinaba; James Caulcrick; Olufemi Ogunbayode; Edgar Nanakumo; Kalafite Adeyemi; Patrick Dokumor ; Joseph Mbu and Sabo Ringim.
A statement released in Abuja by the Head, Press and Public Relations, PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, said the Chairman of the Commission, Mike Okiro “congratulated the affected officers for their meritorious service to the nation and
wished them well in their new endeavours.”
