Shortly after the appointment of Mohammed Abubakar Adamu as new Inspector General of Police (IGP), the new IGP named Frank Mba as new Force Public Relations Officer (PRO), taking over from ACP Jimoh Moshood.
Here are the important facts about the new police spokesperson.
1. Frank Mba, an Assistant Commissioner of Police and a Lawyer, is an alumnus of the University of Lagos where he studied Law
2. He has a Masters Degree in Law from the University of Dundee, Scotland, United Kingdom
3. Mba also attended the Nigeria Police Academy, Kano where he had his initial police training
4. He is also a graduate of the prestigious FBI National Academy, Quantico, USA
5. The new police spokesperson, in addition, holds a Certificate in National and International Security from the Harvard University, USA
6. Mba, an experienced communicator and image maker, has previously served as spokesman, both at the national and the Lagos state command levels
7. He has worked in multiple police units and departments across the country
8. Frank has also attended some internationally recognised Law Enforcement trainings, both within and outside Nigeria
These include: Countering Violent Extremism and Police Leadership Course at the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA), Roswell, New Mexico, USA (2018); Strategic Leadership and Command Course, Police Staff College, Jos (2017); Crisis and Disaster Management Course, Israel (2013); Managing the Media in Crisis Situations, School of Media and Communications, Pan Atlantic University, Lagos (2013); US-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program, with special focus on International Crime Issues, Washington DC (2010); General Criminal Investigation Course at the International Law Enforcement Academy (ILEA), Botswana (2009); Middle Management Course on Global Peace Operations in Vicenza, Italy (2008); amongst others.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that at least four deputy inspectors general of police may be on their way out of Nigeria’s law enforcement agency with Ibrahim Idris, the former nspector general, whose tenure ended with his retirement on Tuesday, January 15.
The forced retirement of the four DIGs, who are part of the management team of the police, would be to pave way for the new IGP, Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, to begin the running of the affairs of the organisation.
According to the report, those that might be affected by the reorganisation include DIG Maigari Dikko who is in charge of department of finance and administration; DIG Joshuak Habila, department of operations; DIG Emmanuel Inyang, information and communications technology; and DIG Agboola Oshodi-Glover, logistics and supply.
