The National Assembly Divisional Police Officer (DPO), CSP Abdul Sulu-Gambari, who was deployed to Adamawa State at the weekend by the Police Force Headquarters, Abuja, yesterday, handed over to his successor, SP Abdullahi Sambo.

Sulu-Gambari, who did the handing over at about 1pm to the new DPO at the Police designated office at the lobby of the National Assembly, was in mufti (white caftan) while the new DPO was in Police uniform with coterie of Policemen around him.

He is to report at his new post in Adamawa today. He however, declined to speak to journalists, who witnessed the handing over. Instead, he expressed appreciation to the National Assembly media team for their presence and the cooperation accorded him throughout his service as DPO of the apex Assembly.

Meanwhile, a source close to the National Assembly, told our correspondent that Sulu-Gambari’s sudden transfer was a punitive action of the Police high command against him for the role he played during the April 18, 2018 invasion of the Senate Chamber by suspected armed political thugs.
