Police AIGs meet Okiro over impending sack

27 June 2016, 14:41

Abuja - Some Assistant Inspectors General of Police are currently holding talks with the Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Mike Okiro over their impending sack from the Force, Eagleonline reports.

It was gathered that the Acting Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has written to President Muhammadu Buhari demanding the sack of no fewer than 30 senior police officers.

Most of them, apart from the Deputy Inspectors General of Police, who are seven in number, are said to be of the rank of AIG.

Idris was himself promoted from the rank of AIG to Acting IG.

Idris is alleged to be demanding the sack of the AIGs because though some of them are his colleagues in terms of course and rank, they are his senior in terms of promotion.

Most of them became AIG before Idris did.

News24 previously reported that the new Acting Inspector General of Police, may have been given the go-ahead to clean up the top hierarchy of the Police Force by President Muhammadu Buhari.

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.
