Insecurity: IGP orders posting of 54 ACPs to commands nationwide


In response to the prevailing insecurity in the country, Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kayode Egbetokun has directed the assignment of Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs) to assume leadership roles within the Intelligence Department at both Zonal and State Commands nationwide.

The IGP emphasized that this initiative aims to strengthen and elevate the overall capabilities of the Police Force’s intelligence division.

The decision to deploy ACPs, according to the police, aligns with the IGP’s commitment to enhance and optimize the Intelligence Department’s performance across all levels of the Force.

This strategic move is envisioned as a crucial step in combatting the escalating crime rate in the country, reflecting the IGP’s overarching vision statement.

Recall that the IGP on assumption of duty reactivated the Presidential approval to upgrade the Force Intelligence Bureau to the status of a Department with the appointment of DIG Habu Sanni, as the DIG in charge of the new Department of Force Intelligence.

According to a statement issued on Tuesday by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi: “IGP has, however, tasked the newly appointed Senior Officers to deploy all intelligence-based assets in combating crimes and criminality in their respective areas of responsibility.

“He has further charged them to entrench professionalism and apply their wealth of experience in the course of discharging their duties towards strengthening the already existing intelligence architecture of the Force.”

The posting, Adejobi said is with immediate effect.
