The Police Service Commission (PSC) has approved the appointment and posting of new Commissioners of Police (CPs) in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Ekiti, Benue, and two other states.

This decision comes amidst increasing insecurity across the country. Ikechukwu Ani, the Head of Press and Public Relations in the Commission, announced this in a statement on Wednesday.

The statement reveals that CP Beneth Igwe has been appointed as the new Commissioner of Police for the FCT.

He previously served as the Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Operations in the FCT Command.

Other newly appointed CPs are Peter Ukachi Opara, Osun State; Olughemiga Emmanuel Adesina, Benue State; Akinwale Kunle Adeniran, Ekiti State; and Mohammed Umar Abba, Adamawa State.

Others are Abaniwonda Surajudeen Olufemi, Delta State; Ademola Waheed Ayilara, Akwa Ibom State; David Iloyanomon, Taraba State; Abayomi Oladipo Peter, Ondo State; and Hassan Abdu Yabnet, Plateau State.

The Chairman of the PSC, Dr. Solomon Arase, has issued a warning to the new CPs, stating that the Commission will not tolerate any excuses for their failure to provide strong and efficient leadership.

Allub Times reports that the level of insecurity in the country is on the rise. One of the recent incidents involved the unfortunate deaths of two monarchs in Ekiti State.
