Kayode Egbetokun, the substantive Inspector-General of Police (IGP), has redeployed no fewer than 40 senior police officers to various commands and formations across the country.

Egbetokun, who announced this in Abuja on Thursday, explained that the development was part of the mandate to establish a professionally competent, service-driven, rule of law compliant, and people-friendly police force.

Speaking through the force spokesman, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the top cop stated that the redeployment aimed to reflect the new status of senior officers who were recently elevated to their next ranks.
