Hours After President Buhari Extended Adamu's Tenure As IGP, See What A lawyer Said That Got Reactions

It was reported that, Mohammed Adamu's tenure as the IGP of the country has been extended by three months.

The Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, announced this on Thursday, February 4, in Abuja.

The minister said the extension would allow the right individual to be chosen to succeed Adamu.

A Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, reacted hours after President Muhammadu Buhari extended Mohammed Adamu's tenure as the country's Inspector-General of Police (IGP) by three months.

Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), has criticised President Buhari for extending the term of IGP Adamu.

However, Adegboruwa said the president's decision was unlawful and unconstitutional.

Legit.ng reports that Adegboruwa said, the implication of Buhari's action, is that Nigeria does not currently have an Inspector General of Police.

He emphasized that the president lacks the power to reabsorb a retired police officer back into the NPF through a purported tenure extension, which, according to him, is not contemplated by law.
