The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim K Idris, after his meeting with the Commanders of Police Mobile Force (PMF), Counter Terrorism Unit (CTU) and Special Protection Unit (SPU) on the 20th March, 2018 has graciously shifted the enforcement/implementation of the withdrawal of police officers attached to political and public office holders, VIPs, public and private companies and other categories of enterprises and business outfits and corporate individuals throughout the country as earlier directed.

“The withdrawal will now take effect from the 20th of April, 2018, this is to enable the force carry out a thorough assessment of the current deployment and carry out appropriate withdrawal.

“Meanwhile, the deputy inspector-general of police, department of operations of the force, has been mandated by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to direct all the commissioners of police and their supervising Assistant Inspectors-General (AIGs) in the states and zonal commands across the country to halt the withdrawal, revise and return those already withdrawn to their duty posts pending the new date of 20th of April, 2018.

“The task force teams set up by the IGP at the Force Headquarters, the Force X – Squad and others set up by the assistant inspectors-general of police and commissioner of police at the zonal and state Commands have equally been directed by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to suspend the enforcement of the withdrawal with immediate effect pending the new date,” the statement said adding that for the avoidance of doubt, all those who already have such police protections are to retain the personnel with them on deployment.
