Buhari Appoints Mohammed Adamu as new IGP, replacing retiring Idris
President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Mr Mohammed Adamu as the new Inspector General of Police.
The President made the appointment following the retirement of the outgoing police boss, Mr Ibrahim Idris.
This was disclosed on Tuesday after Idris and Abubakar met with the President at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
The outgoing police boss took over from former IGP Solomon Arase in March 2016 following his appointment by the President.
Mr Mohammed’s appointment finally brings to an end to the controversy surrounding the retirement of Mr Idris as there were speculations that President Buhari might extend his tenure.
