The Nigeria Police Force has confirmed the withdrawal of its personnel from individuals and organisations who don’t have direct need for them.
The acting Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris made this known at his inaugural Press briefing in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
He said the measure is aimed at tackling corruption, terrorism and abuse of office within the Force at Federal, States and Local Government levels.
The Acting Inspector General of Police maintained that his administration would strengthen police units in order to fight corruption amongst civil servants.
He pledged to also restructure the Police Special Units in order to have a stabilised country.
Three Commissioners of the Force were promoted and decorated from their rank of Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs) to Acting Commissioners of Police (ACPs) during the event.
President Muhammadu Buhari had appointed Ibrahim Kpotun Idris, as the new acting Inspector General of Police last week.
Idris’ appointment followed the retirement of Solomon Arase as he clocks the compulsory retirement age of 60.
