Federal Capital Territory and 12 other states also get new police commissioners


The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, has dispatched new police commissioners to the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and 12 other states.

Force spokesperson Frank Mba revealed the information in an Abuja statement on Friday.

The deployment of senior officers, according to Mr Mba, is part of an attempt to reorganize the force for improved efficiency, to stabilize the internal security order, and to ramp up the battle against crime and criminality.

The police force had recently completed a promotion exercise in which numerous police commissioners were elevated to Assistant Inspector General, making them unfit to supervise state police commands due to their new position.
