The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the redeployment of Rivers State Commissioner for Police, Dandaura Mustapha.
According to a statement by Force Spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, the Inspector General of Police ordered the posting and redeployment of three senior Police Officers to different commands, formation and departments.
While the former CP of Rivers State, Dandaura Mustapha was made Provost of the Force Headquarters in Abuja, he was replaced by CP Joseph Gobum Mukan.
The third officer who was redeployed was CP Musa Adze, who is to become Commissioner of Police Anti-Fraud Unit.
The IGP charged the affected Commissioners of Police to diligently and professionally discharge their duties in their new areas of responsibilities.
According to DCP Mba’s statement, the posting and the redeployment of the affected Senior Police Officers is with immediate effect.
Meanwhile, Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike has continued to attack the Federal government over its relationship with the state during this pandemic.
Wike on Friday ordered the arrest and quarantine of 22 Exxon Mobil staff who entered the state from Akwa Ibom for allegedly violating the executive order on lockdown.
Wike had previously ordered the arrest of two pilots of Caverton Helicopters for flying some oil workers into the state during the lockdown.
The company had argued that the federal government exempted it from the flight ban but the governor dismissed the argument and the pilots were arraigned in court and remanded in prison.
