Nigeria Police Force Retires Four Deputy Inspectors-General of Police and Promotes Four Others
The Police Service Commission (PSC) has forcibly retired four Deputy Inspectors-General of Police (DIGs) and promoted four Assistant Inspectors-General of Police to fill their positions. The retirement decision was made due to the lack of voluntary retirement or resignation from the retiring DIGs. The newly appointed DIGs are expected to bring value and strength to the Nigeria Police Force's efforts to fulfill its mandate.

LAGOS - In a move to uphold discipline and prevent status reversal within the Nigeria Police Force, the Police Service Commission (PSC) has compulsorily retired four Deputy Inspectors-General of Police (DIGs) and promoted four Assistant Inspectors-General of Police to take their place.

The affected DIGs, Dan-Mallam Mohammed, Moses Ambakina Jitiboh, Hafiz Mohammed Inuwa, and Adeleke Adeyinka Bode, were expected to voluntarily retire or resign following the appointment of the acting Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, by President Bola Tinubu on June 19, 2023.

However, with no applications for retirement or resignation received from any of the retiring DIGs, the Police Service Commission took the decision to compulsorily retire them. The retirement is effective from Friday, 25th August, 2023.

The Commission expressed its gratitude for the immense contributions and efforts of the retired DIGs towards the peace and security of Nigeria, while wishing them well in their future endeavors.

The newly appointed Deputy Inspectors-General of Police are Ibrahim Sani Ka'oje, Daniel Sokari-Pedro, Ayuba Ekpeji, and Usman Nagogo. Their appointments are subject to ratification by the board of the commission.

These promotions were made to ensure a smooth transition within the ranks of the Nigeria Police Force and maintain the discipline and regimented culture of the organization. The newly appointed DIGs are recognized for their lack of pending disciplinary matters or serious health impairments.

The Police Service Commission hopes that the appointment of the new DIGs will bring added value and greater vigor to the efforts of the Nigeria Police Force in fulfilling its mandate to protect and serve the nation.

Law enforcement agencies play a critical role in maintaining law and order within society. The retirement and promotion decisions made by the Police Service Commission are aimed at strengthening the efficiency and effectiveness of the Nigeria Police Force.

The Nigeria Police Force has an essential role in combating crime, preserving peace, and ensuring the safety and security of the citizens. With these changes, the Commission aims to ensure a seamless transition of leadership and uphold the high standards of professionalism within the Force.

It is expected that the newly appointed DIGs will bring fresh perspectives, innovative ideas, and a commitment to excellence as they assume their new roles.
