Major shakeup as IGP redeploys Imo CP, five others

The Acting Inspector- General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba, has ordered the posting of Commissioner of Police Abutu Yaro to Imo as the new CP in charge.

The posting of the new CP, Baba said, is in furtherance of efforts by the Police leadership towards strengthening security, tackling violent crimes and enhancing optimal coordination of policing operations within the State.

Yaro, a fellow of the National Defence College and the immediate-past Commissioner of Police, Zamfara State Command, is an operationally-minded cop.

By this development, Abutu Yaro takes over from CP Nasiru Mohammed, who has been redeployed to Western Port Authority, Lagos.

A statement on Tuesday by the Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba said: “In the same vein, Zamfara State Police Command now has a new Commissioner of Police. He is CP Hussaini Rabiu.

“Other Commissioners of Police affected by the new posting and redeployment are: CP John Amadi, mni who has been posted from Western Port Authority, Lagos to Airport Police Command, Ikeja, Lagos; CP Anderson Bankole who is now in charge of the Police Special Fraud Unit (PSFU), Ikoyi, Lagos and CP Joe Nwachukwu Enwonwu, posted to the Department of Finance and Administration (DFA), Force Headquarters, Abuja as the Commissioner of Police, DFA”.

The IGP, while charging the newly posted officers to bring to bear their professional experiences in improving policing and restoring public confidence in their new places of assignment, assured citizens of the determination of the Force to upscale its operations, improve public safety and tackle all forms of crimes in the country.
