Buhari finally extends IGP’s tenure
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that President Muhammadu Buhari extended the tenure of the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar Adamu.
IGP Adamu was due for retirement on Monday, February 1, 2021.
The news was broken on Thursday, February 4, by the minister of police affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, while briefing State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Adamu did not pay over N2bn for tenure extension - Police
In a related development, the police command denied the rumours that the IG of police paid the whopping sum of N2 billion for the extension of his tenure.
The NPF's public relations officer, CP Frank Mba, on Monday, February 8, in a statement sighted by Legit.ng debunked claims, saying that the extension of service of the IGP was strictly the prerogative of President Buhari.
Mba went on to describe the publication by the online news platform dated Sunday, February 7, 2021, as untrue, unfounded, defamatory, and libellous.
