In an effort to address the increasing security challenges in the country, the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, has instructed that Assistant Commissioners of Police (ACPs) be assigned to lead the Intelligence Department of the Force at Zonal and State Commands across the nation.

This decision, aimed at strengthening the intelligence department of the Police Force, was announced in a statement on Tuesday.

The posting of ACPs is based on the IGP’s determination to improve and enhance the effectiveness of the Intelligence Department.

He recognizes the crucial role that this department plays in combating crime in the country, aligning with his vision for the Police Force.

“IGP has, however, tasked the newly appointed Senior Officers to deploy all intelligence-based assets in combating crimes and criminality in their respective areas of responsibility,” the IGO said.

“He has further charged them to entrench professionalism and apply their wealth of experience in the course of discharging their duties towards strengthening the already existing intelligence architecture of the Force.”

According to the announcement, the posting will take effect immediately.
