Buhari bows to pressure, appoints new Ag. Inspector General of Police

President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) Usman Alkali Baba as acting Inspector General of Police (IGP).

This is coming after several Civil Society groups, The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) and other advocates of constitutional democracy either dragged President Buhari to court or asked him to send the former IGP,Mohammed Adamu packing instead of renewing the expired tenure.

This was announced to correspondents by the Minister of Police Affair, Muhammad Maigari Dingyadi, at the presidential villa, Abuja on Tuesday.

He replaces Mohammed Adamu whose expired tenure was extended recently.
