Presidency set to name new IGP

Indication that President Muhammadu Buhari is set to bade IGP Ibrahim Idris goodbye from the service of the Nigeria Police Force has emerged.
Indeed, unconfirmed reports say Buhari is set to name one Abubakar Adamu Mohammed as the new Inspector-General of Police.
Outgoing Inspector-General Ibrahim Idris met with the president at the State House on Monday afternoon, a visit police sources said has become a tradition for outgoing inspectors-general in recent years.
Until his appointment Monday night, Mr Mohammed, from Nasarawa State, is an assistant inspector-general by rank. He is also known within police circles as Adamu Mohammed Lafia, in reference to his place of birth, which is the Nasarawa State capital.
Mr Mohammed was born on November 9, 1961. He enlisted in the police in 1986. He has a bachelors degree in geography.
He was at one time a director of peacekeeping operations. He is a former police commissioner in Enugu and was an AIG in charge of Zone 5.
He is currently a directing staff member at the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru, near Jos, Plateau State.
His elevation might see several deputy inspectors-general retired from service, an exercise that would be reminiscent of how Mr Buhari sacked DIGs when he named Mr Idris as IG in June 2016.
