President Muhammadu Buhari has appoint Adamu Mohammed, a former Enugu state commissioner of police, as the acting inspector-general of police (IGP) following the exit of IGP Idris from the service.
Though the appointment is yet to be made public, a source within the police circle said the appointment would be made public any moment from now.
Mohammed, who hails from Nasarawa state, had been not been given functioning role within the police force since completing his assignment as the CP in Enugu state.
He is currently doing a course at the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru, near Jos.
When appointed, Mohammed will lay to rest the controversy surrounding the tenure of Ibrahim Idris, outgoing IGP who is believed to be seeking for a short extension until after the 2019 elections.
