The Police Council, presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari, Thursday confirmed Mohammed Adamu as the substantive Inspector General of Police (IG).
Consequently, Adamu who had been serving in acting capacity since January 15, this year, when his predecessor, Ibrahim Idris, bowed out of service, promised to restructure the Nigeria Police to foster efficiency and effectiveness.
At the meeting of the council whose membership comprises governors and Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Mr. Musiliu Smith, Buhari pronounced Adamu as the substantive IG.
“The council has approved the recommendation of Mohammed Adamu as the Inspector-General of Police. We congratulate him,” Buhari said.
