Just in: IGP orders immediate reversal of Police 12-hour shift duty to 8-hours
The inspector general of police, Mohammed Adamu, on Thursday, April 25, reversed the shift structure of the Nigeria Police.
Adamu while declaring the conference of heads of Police Medical Facilities at the Force headquarters open directed that the 12-hour shift system for officers who are on duty be reversed to the traditional 8-hours shift.
He also ordered for a three-shift duty standard for all officers of the Nigeria Police.
Meanwhile, we previously reported that a bill seeking to reform the Nigeria Police was passed by the Senate on Wednesday, April 17.
The bill was passed following the presentation of a report by the chairman of the Police Affairs Committee, Tijani Kaura.
We gathered that while moving for the bill’s passage, the chairman said during a public hearing, stakeholders were divided over the appointment of an inspector-general of police, subject to approval of the upper legislative chamber.
