The new acting Inspector-General of Police Muhammed Adamu has retired all the seven Deputy Inspectors-General of Police (DIGs).
They are: DIGs in charge of Finance & Administration, (Maigari Dikko); Operations (Habila Joshak); Information & Communications Technology (Emmanuel Inyang); Logistics & Supply (Agboola Oshodi-Glover); Research & Planning (Mohammed Katsina); Training & Development (Sani Mohammed) and Federal Criminal Investigation & Intelligence (Peace Ibekwe-Abdallah).
One of the affected DIGs confirmed the retirement to The Nation last night.
“Well, I believe the news of our retirement should be true and the Force spokesman should be the best person to confirm it to you,” the DIG said.
On whether he has received any official letter of retirement, the DIG said: “Officially, not yet, but I think the Force Public Relations Officer will confirm it to the media soon.”
With their retirement, new Police DIGs will be appointed in the next few days.
