The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has announced the deployment of CP Ahmad Tijjani Abdullahi as the 23rd Commissioner of Police in Jigawa state. The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Lawan Shiisu Adam, made this announcement in a statement issued on Monday.
CP Abdullahi’s deployment follows the promotion of the former Commissioner of Police, CP Effiom Emmanuel Ekot, to the rank of Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG). CP Ekot has been subsequently redeployed to the office of the National Security Adviser (ONSA), paving the way for the appointment of CP Abdullahi.
Prior to his new posting, CP Abdullahi served as the Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of Procurement at the Force Headquarters in Abuja. His experience and expertise in law enforcement make him well-suited for the role of Commissioner of Police in Jigawa state.
In assuming his new position, CP Abdullahi has called for the cooperation and support of sister security agencies, traditional rulers, religious leaders, and other relevant stakeholders. He understands the importance of collaboration in effectively combating crime and ensuring the safety and security of the residents of Jigawa state, both within its borders and beyond.
With the new Commissioner of Police in place, it is expected that there will be a renewed focus on maintaining law and order in the state. CP Abdullahi’s leadership and the collective efforts of the security agencies and community leaders will play a pivotal role in combating crime and criminality.
The Nigerian Police Force remains dedicated to protecting the lives and properties of Nigerian citizens. This deployment underscores the commitment of the NPF to strengthening security measures and ensuring a safe environment for all residents of Jigawa state.
