This information was conveyed by the State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Lawan Shiisu Adam, through a statement issued to the press on Monday.
The deployment of CP Abdullahi follows the promotion of the former Commissioner of Police, CP Effiom Emmanuel Ekot, to the rank of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG). CP Ekot has been subsequently reassigned to the office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA).
