…As Arase Bows Out
President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Assistant Inspector of Police (AIG) Ibrahim Kpotun Idris, as Acting Inspector General of Police.
Kpotun, who hails from Niger State (North-Central) is an LLB (Honours) in law degree holder from University of Maiduguri.
AIG Idris was enlisted into Nigeria Police Force as cadet ASP in 1984 and rose through the ranks.
Analysts are of the opinion that he may have been chosen by the President because of his track record of performance in the service.
The former IGP, Mr Solomon Arase retired today a little over a year after becoming Nigeria’s police no 1 man.
The Edo-born policeman was appointed IGP the by former President Goodluck Jonathan in April 2015 following the sack of Barrister Suleiman Abba.
Arase bowed out of office after clocking the mandatory retirement age of 60 years and having also served the Nigerian Police Force for 35 years.
