The latest redeployment in the Nigerian Police is a step to reposition the service for a smooth electoral process come 2015.
These were the words of the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar on Friday in Lagos at the pull-out parade of five senior medical officers.
Mr Abubakar pledged the readiness of the Police to ensure the safety of Nigerians.
“You will see a lot of things, first of all, we are doing training and retraining programme. As I’m talking to you we have a very large number of officers of units of Mobile Policemen in Gaza, Pakistan, Israel and in India for training.
“We have intelligence courses being run in the country and outside the country with the FBI on the assistance of the United States Government and the Embassy of America in Nigeria.
“So, so many things will unfold, since it is something to do with safety and security, it is better left on the chest but you will see them unfolding one after the other.” He said.
Speaking on the redeployment, he said, “You can see that we tried to reposition the force with the posting of 25 Commissioners of Police, 25 Deputy Commissioners of Police and probably about 29 Assistant Commissioners of Police all over the country, and this is just the beginning of it.”
