The vice president of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osibanjo, the IGP, Mohammed Adamu, and the Minister of the interior, Rauf Aregbesolu were in Imo State yesterday to inspect the degree of damage done to the Police headquarters in the state together with the correctional center that was affected alongside.
However, the new Acting IGP was announced yesterday while Mohammed Adamu was supposedly in Imo State for an official visit to the Imo State police headquarters. Usman Alkali Baba was the DIG that was appointed the new acting IGP who will resume full duty as the IGP after a formal handover from the former IGP.
See the photos of the newly Appointed Acting IGP.
The handover formalities may come at any moment from now as the Former IGP had completed the three-month extension of service granted to him by the president after he ended his tenure as the IGP.
Although Mohammed Adamu will be leaving office, there are many things he achieved during his years of active service as the IGP, and sincerely I know that many Nigerians will remember him for that.
1. The Disbandment Of SARS: it was during his tenure that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the police unit was disbanded following the nationwide protest by many Nigerian youths.
See photos from the End SARS protest.
There was a high profile of police brutality across the nation which lead to nationwide protests by youths, IGP Mohammed Adamu did not only disband the SARS but also carried out a massive reform of the Police Force in administration and structure.
2. The Recovery Of Arms And Ammunitions: The Nigerian Police Force has recovered numerous arms and ammunitions from several hoodlums who have been in illegal possessions of arms which they use to engage in all manner of ruthlessness. He launched an operation to recover arms and ammunitions from hoodlums stating that leaving arms in the arms of criminals is a major threat to security.
See pictures of recovered arms by the Nigeria Police Force.
3. The New Police Radio Station: the Nigerian Police Force under his leadership has completed a radio station in Abuja that will serve to enhance the way the Police Force relates with the masses on the security issues across the country. A lot of employment opportunities have been created as the Police radio station will employ suitable personnel to work in the new establishment.
See the photos of the Radio Station.
There would have been many more things he would have done for the country but he has come to the end of tenure and should leave to allow another person to continue from where he stopped. I pray that the almighty God will guide him and his family as they retire from active service to the Nation.
Dear readers, what will you remember the IGP Mohammed Adamu for? What was that thing he did that you will never forget him for?
