Nigeria Police Re-organises FCIID, Appoints CP
To get this done, Inspector-General of Polıce, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has appointed Mr Ibrahim Umar, to take charge of department and reorganised it.
The spokesman of the department, Mr. Pascal Ogazi, who confirmed the new development said, “the new police boss, Umar, was posted to re-organise the FCIID in Lagos”, adding that, the move followed several complaints about its operation in Lagos area.
“The I-G is not comfortable with the complaints, hence, the appointment of CP Umar to reposition the department for efficiency”, he said.
Ogazi described his new boss as a commissioner, who had excelled in intelligence operations at different commands.
While confirming that the CP Umar had resumed and met with all sections of the department, he said: “The commissioner has briefed all the personnel on what is expected of them.
“He told them that FCIID was a place of excellence in investigations which had long lost.
“He said his coming to the department was to see how they can restore the lost glory of the office in Lagos. He said the complaints brought before I-G about the department caused serious confusion.
“The Nigeria Polıce is one and all sections or units are supposed to speak with one voice. He warned the officers and men against land matters.
“That does not mean they cannot make arrest and investigate if there is a threat to life and other criminal matters about land. He also warned the men against human rights abuses”.
