Abuja, Nov. 3, 2020 The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr Mohammed Adamu, has approved the posting of Mr Sanusi Lemu, a Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG), as Head, Department of Operations of the Nigerian Police Force.
Mba said that the postings of the senior officers followed the recent retirement of the two DIGs heading the departments, Abdulmajid Ali (Operations) and Abduldahiru Danwawu (Finance and Administration).
He said that the two erstwhile heads of the departments retired after the completion of their statutory years of service.
According to him, the new DIG (Operations) holds a Bachelor of Education (B.A. Ed.) in Political Science and has attended several professional courses, including intermediate command course, senior command course and peace keeping training course.
“A distinguished member of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Lemu has held many command positions, including the Commissioner of Police, Kaduna and Bauchi Police Commands.
“Until his new posting, he was the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in-charge of Zone 12 headquarters, Bauchi,” he said.
Mba also said that the new head of Finance and Administration holds a Master degree in Public Administration and a Bachelor degree (B.A. Ed.) in Political Science.
He added that Baba, a fellow of the National Defence College and member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, had attended several professional courses and workshops.
The Yobe-born police officer had also held several strategic positions, including Assistant Inspector-General of Police in-charge of Zone 5, Benin, Zone 4, Makurdi, Zone 7, Abuja and Commissioner of Police, FCT and Delta Commands.
He was, until his new posting, the Force Secretary.
He said that the posting of Dandaura followed the vacuum created by the posting of Baba, who was the former occupant of the position.
The FPRO said that Dandaura, who was appointed into the Force on March 3, 1990, holds a Master of Science (M.Sc.) degree in International Affairs and Strategic Studies and Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in History from Bayero University, Kano.
He quoted the IGP as calling on the newly-deployed officers to bring their vast experiences and professionalism to bear in their new offices to enhance the ongoing drive at repositioning the Force for improved service delivery.
