The Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Usman Baba Alkali, has approved the redeployment of Mr. Monday Bala Kuryas as Commissioner of Police (CP), Anambra State Police Command.
Kuryas has been redeployed to the Anti-Fraud Section of the Force Headquarters Annex, Lagos, is to be replaced by Christopher Owolabi.
The IGP said, the deployment was part efforts at re-ordering, overhauling, and strengthening the security and policing system in the state, Southeast, and South-South regions.
There is extreme rise of insecurity in the two zones which has led to killing of many people, inclusive of security officers but this development may not be connected with the rising insecurity.
Yesterday in Abuja, Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Frank Mba, a Commissioner of Police, in a statement said the redeployment was ultimately planned to improve the operational efficiency of the Commands and ensure public safety and security.
“In a similar vein, the IGP has ordered the posting of other strategic and tactical commanders within the zones.”
A total of two Deputy Commissioners of Police (DCPs), 14 Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs), and other mid-level officers were affected,” Mba said.
The IGP charged Owolabi to take good measures in consolidating and improving on the legacies of his predecessor and to rearrange the security apparatus of the state, harness the full potential of the Command, its workforce, assets, and stakeholders to secure the safety of all citizens.
Alkali enjoined Southeast and South-South residents to give the necessary cooperation to the Police and other security agencies to enable them succeed in the responsibilities of safeguarding them and the commonwealth of the nation.
