His cnfirmation was announced at the Police Council Meeting presided over by President Buhari in Abuja today May 23rd.
Few weeks ago, Adamu Mohammed warned Police Mobile Force (PMF) Squadron Commanders against illegal posting of personnel for body guard duties.
He made this known at a meeting with the 67 PMF Squadron Commanders across the country on Thursday in Abuja.
In his statement, he said attaching personnel to VIPs without his approval was illegal, alleging that some commissioners of police and commanders do that without approval.
“This is considered within the context of the renewed offensive by the Nigeria police against the heightened threat of kidnapping, armed robbery among others.
“As you assume full leadership of your squadrons, you will all be expected to draw on your vast operational experiences towards supporting other detachments of the police, ” he said.
