Major shake up as IGP makes new appointments

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Kayode Egbetokun, has announced the appointment of two senior officers to strategic management positions within the Nigeria Police Force.

This move is part of ongoing efforts to enhance the efficiency of the force and strengthen international crime-fighting collaborations.

AIG Yetunde Longe has been appointed as the new Force Secretary, while AIG Idowu Owohunwa has been assigned to the INTERPOL National Central Bureau (NCB) at the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) in Abuja.

The appointments were disclosed in a statement released on Tuesday by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi. The statement highlighted that these postings are aimed at improving the operational effectiveness of the Nigeria Police Force and its multinational approach to tackling crimes.

In her new role, AIG Longe will be responsible for overseeing the secretarial functions at Force Headquarters, ensuring the implementation of the IGP’s policies and directives, and coordinating the affairs of senior police officers.

AIG Owohunwa, on the other hand, will focus on enhancing international police cooperation and ensuring Nigeria meets its obligations within the global INTERPOL framework.

“The Inspector General of Police, while commending the senior police officers for their dedication and service to the Nigeria Police Force, emphasized that their new assignments are a testament to their exceptional abilities and the trust the Force places in their capabilities,” the statement read.

Adejobi also noted that these postings take immediate effect and follow the retirement of their predecessors.

These appointments are expected to bring a new level of efficiency and international cooperation to the Nigeria Police Force, furthering its mission to ensure national and international security.
