I'm in Absolute Control of the Police Force - IGP Replies Army General
The Inspector General of Police has made the declaration in response to an accusation by a retired Army General, Garba Wahab that he’s not in control of the Force. The Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu, has declared that he’s in control of the police. Adamu said he’s in control of the activities and modus operandi of the police force.
He stated this in a statement signed by the Spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, on Tuesday. He insisted that the retired General spoke out of ignorance.
The statement reads:
