The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Sulieman Abba, has redeployed Joseph Mbu and 27 other Assistant Inspectors General of Police to various departments, zonal commands and formations of the force across the country.

The redeployment was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja by the Force Spokesman, Emmanuel Ojukwu.

According to the statement, Abba stated that their redeployment was as a result of recent promotions of some senior officers and vacancies caused by retirement.

Amongst those affected by the posting is AIG Mbu Joseph Mbu who has been posted from Zone 7, Abuja to Zone 2, Lagos.

Abba while charging the officers to be more service-oriented in the discharge of their constitutional responsibilities, urged the public to also partner closely with the force in its determination to ensure improved security of Nigeria.
