Four months after the death of former Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) in charge of Operations, Haruna John, in a helicopter crash in Jos, Plateau State, a new DIG has been appointed to take the vacant position.
This is in continuation of the present efforts aimed at restructuring and repositioning of the Nigeria Police for greater efficiency and effective service delivery, police authorities have said.
The Inspector General of Police, Mr M.D. Abubakar, also approved the immediate posting and redeployment of 10 senior police officers who were recently promoted and decorated at the police headquarters in Abuja.
