THE Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has ordered the immediate posting of Echeng Echeng as the new Commissioner of Police in Anambra State.
He takes over from CP Tony Olofu, who has been redeployed to the Force Headquarters, Abuja.
The IG has also ordered the deployment of a detachment of NPF Special Forces to complement the ongoing peace-building efforts of the Nigeria Police Operation Restore Peace in Anambra State.
This was contained in a statement on Tuesday, by the force spokesman, Frank Mba, titled, ‘IG orders posting of CP Echeng Echeng as new commissioner of police, Anambra State.’
It said, “The IGP, who is particularly concerned by the renewed incidents of attacks on innocent individuals and symbol of state authority in the state, ordered the new commissioner of police to mobilise both kinetic and non-kinetic law enforcement and crime- fighting approaches to reverse the negative trend, reclaim public spaces from hoodlums and restore public peace in the state.”
