President Muhammadu Buhari has extended the tenure of the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu by three months.
This development was disclosed on Thursday afternoon by the Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi while briefing State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He noted that the extension of the IGP’s tenure by the president is to allow enough time to select a new police boss.
Naija News reports that Adamu was expected to leave the office on Monday 1st February 2021, having completed his 35 years maximum stay in service. The police boss enlisted on February 2, 1986.
Adamu, who will turn 60 on September 17, was appointed as acting IGP on January 15, 2019, following the retirement of the former Police boss, IGP Ibrahim Idris. The police boss has spent two years in office.
