ABUJA, (CAJ News) – THE Nigeria Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase, has posted new Commissioners of Police to Lagos, Rivers and Ogun States.

Abayomi Shogunle, Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, confirmed the

He said Ajani Fatai Owoseni was posted to Lagos State Command while Chris Ezike had been deployed to Rivers State Command. Abdulmajid Ali heads the Ogun State Command.

Shogunle added that Dan Bature was now in charge of intelligence at Force Headquarters Abuja, Valentine Ntomchukwu would handle Admin Dept of Logistics and Supply, Force Headquarters Abuja and Hyelasinda Kimo Musa will serve as Commissioner in Charge of Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad, FCIID Force Headquarters Abuja.

Others are Kayode Aderanti, who has been posted Admin, Department of
