New acting Police IG to retire 20 senior officers

23 June 2016, 20:19

Abuja - Indications have emerged that  the Federal Government may have ordered the new Acting Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to clean up the top hierarchy of the Police Force, Vanguard reports.

Over 20 senior officers mostly Assistant Inspectors General of Police, AIGs, who enlisted in the Force before the Acting IGP are said to be affected by the imminent shake-up.

Seven Deputy Inspectors General, DIGs, have been retired already, following the retirement of former IGP, Solomon Arase, after 35 years in service.

It was learnt that the retirement of the 20 senior officers, who form a generation of officers of the police, would create a massive vacuum of both experienced and highly sound professional officers, who are specialists in fields that will affect the force badly.

This is coming two days after President Muhammadu Buhari approved the appointment of Idris as the new acting Inspector General of Police according News24

Idris was an Assistant Inspector General of Police who once led the Kano state police command before his appointment.
