According to him, the posting is premised on the zeal of the IGP to improve and enhance the effectiveness of the intelligence department at every level of the force.

“It will be recalled that upon assumption of duty by the IGP, he got presidential approval to upgrade the Force Intelligence Bureau to the status of a department,” he said.

Adejobi said the IGP had urged the newly appointed senior officers to deploy all intelligence-based assets in combating crimes and criminality in their respective areas of responsibility.

The I-G enjoined the officers to entrench professionalism and apply their wealth of experience in the discharge of their duties, strengthening the already existing intelligence architecture of the force.

Adejobi said the postings had an immediate effect.
