The Police IG who made this clarification on Thursday, February 7, at a one-day summit organised by the Vanguard for Transparent Leadership and Democracy in Abuja, disclosed that posting Tinubu’s ex-CSO to Kwara had no political undertone.
Adamu who was represented at the event by an assistant commissioner of police, Mogaji Ismaila of the FCT Police Command, said;
“May I appeal to the journalists and the politicians not to drag us into political issues. Posting of commissioners of police is purely the responsibility of the IG in conjunction with the Police Service Commission.
“This recent posting came as a result of the retirement of some commissioners of police and the elevation of some CPs to the rank of assistant inspectors-general of police, and even to the position of deputy inspectors-general of police.
“You don’t expect the IG to leave states whose commissioners of police were promoted to AIGs and DIGs vacant. Definitely, there is going to be movement and as far as we are concerned, the IGP used experience, competence and other qualities in posting those police officers to the affected states.”
