The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the immediate posting of Ahmad Abdulrahman to Enugu Command as the state’s new Commissioner of Police (CP).
He is to take over from Suleiman Balarabe, who has been redeployed to the Force Intelligence Bureau (FCID), Abuja as the CP in-charge of Intelligence.
In a statement the Nigerian Police shared on its official Twitter handle on Tuesday, it said the posting was with immediate effect.
According to the statement, the new CP has held many command positions across the federation, viz. Kaduna, Bayelsa and Ekiti commands.
“His posting as the CP Enugu State is predicated upon his action-oriented approach to work, his track record of outstanding leadership and interpersonal relations.
“The IGP has charged the CP to bring to bear his wealth of experience, leveraging on the force policy on community policing and intelligence-driven crime fighting strategies towards overhauling the security architecture of the coal-rich state.
“The IGP also enjoins the people of the state to partner with the police and accord the CP maximum cooperation in his efforts at revamping the security situation in the state.”
Insecurity situation in Enugu State has highlighted in recent time, especially with attacks and killings by suspected herdsmen.
