INSECURITY: IGP sends new CP to Enugu, orders him to restore sanity in the state



UN report says 64,000 Nigerians are killed yearly

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.
