PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari has appointed the former Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG), Adamu Mohammed as the new Inspector General of Police (IGP), following the retirement of the former  IGP, Idris Abubakar, who turned 60 years on Tuesday.

Sources close to National Light said that Mohammed will  first serve in acting capacity.  Adamu Mohammad who was a one time  Commissioner of Police, Enugu State Police Command,  is an Interpol veteran. He was the AIG in charge of Zone 5, Benin, until last November when he was redeployed to the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPPS), Kuru, Plateau State, as Directing Officer by IGP Idris.
