Nigeria’s new police chief has promised Nigerians to enshrine a police culture that respects human rights.
Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) Usman Alkali Baba, says he’s ready to confront the nation’s internal security challenge head-on.
The Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, disclosed his appointment to State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, and said that the appointment was with immediate effect. The Acting IGP replaced Mr. Mohammed Adamu whose tenure expired February 1, 2021, but President Buhari extended his tenure for three months.
Kidnapping, terrorism and banditry have all but subsumed the land, with Nigeria’s police force famed for aiding and abetting crime than fighting it.
