President Muhammadu Buhari has fired the inspector-general of police, Mohammed Adamu and replaced him with Usman Alkali Baba with immediate effect.

The announcement was made by Maigari Dingyadi, minister of police affairs, who communicated the president’s directive to state house correspondents at the presidential villa on Tuesday.

The change in the leadership of the police force is coming less than 24 hours after gunmen attacked a correctional facility in Owerri, the Imo State capital, freeing some inmates and later proceeded to the Imo State Police Headquarters where they set ablaze the building and destroyed all vehicles within the vicinity.

More to come….
