BREAKING: Buhari extends tenure of IGP Adamu
President Muhammadu Buhari has extended the tenure of Mohammed Adamu as the Inspector General of Police (IGP) by three months.
Mr Adamu was due to retire from the police last Monday having spent the maximum 35 years in service.
The extension to his tenure was announced on Thursday by the Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammad Dingyadi, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Mr Dingyadi said the extension was necessary to give room for the proper selection of a successor.
The extension came hours after an Abuja based legal practitioner, Maxwell Okpara asked a Federal High Court in Abuja to stop Mohammed Adamu from parading himself as the Inspector General of Police. The plaintiff is also asked the court to restrain Adamu from exercising any form of command over officers of the Nigeria Police Force.
