Acting IGP Orders Withdrawal of Senior Police Officers Attached to EFCC

Acting Inspector-General of Police Usman Baba has ordered the withdrawal of senior police officers from the rank of chief superintendent of police and above attached to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.

The police boss, in a letter dated April 15, 2021, addressed to the EFCC chairman and signed by the IGP’s principal staff officer Idowu Omohunwa, hinged the decision on the operational requirements of the Force.

Baba said the affected officers should report not later than Wednesday, April 21.

“I write to extend earnest regards of the Inspector-General of Police and to inform the chairman that the Inspector-General of Police has directed the withdrawal of all senior police officers from the rank of Chief Superintendent of Police and above attached to your agency,” the acting IGP said in the letter.

“The decision is informed by the current operational requirements of the force. You are accordingly requested to kindly direct the immediate release of the concerned officers who are to collectively report to the undersigned on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, at 10am for further instructions.

“I am to also request that you avail this office the comprehensive nominal roll of all police personnel attached to the EFCC to include their date of transfer and designations in the agency for the purpose of updating our records.”

The immediate past IGP Mohammed Adamu had last July withdrew riot policemen from the EFCC and replaced them with new ones.

The new acting police boss had promised to take drastic decisions in his inaugural meeting with Command police commissioners.
