Zanna Mohammed Ibrahim, a former Commissioner of Police in Delta State may be appointed as the next Nigerian Police Force boss.
Mr Ibrahim, 58, rumoured to have been appointed in acting capacity, will be the most senior officer.
If truly appointed, the 58-year-old, an Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG, should be taking over from Mohammed Adamu, who is retiring on attaining 35 years in active service.
Mr Adamu, who was due to retire on Monday, 1 Februray 2021, was one of the officials to welcome President Buhari back from Daura today.
DENISAURUS News gathered that superior officers like AIG Moses Jitoboh, who were overlooked by President Muhammadu Buhari, when appointing Mr Ibrahim as acting IGP, will have to retire.
Sources in the police had also informed this paper that Ibrahim Lamorde, a former chairman of the Economics and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, who was sacked for corruption and later promoted to the Special Fraud Unit, was up to some scheme over the IGP role.
Having spent 35-years at the force, Mr Lamorde retires as an AIG.
