Newly appointed acting Inspector General of Police, IGP, Kayode Egbetokun, has assumed office at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

Egbetokun is taking over the Force headquarters as the 22nd IGP.

The former IGP, Usman Baba, officially handed over to Egbetokun at 12 noon in Abuja.

President Bola Tinubu appointed Egbetokun as the new acting IGP alongside the Service Chiefs on Tuesday.

On Wednesday, Vice President Kashim Shettima decorated him at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Shortly after his decoration, the acting IGP declared war on all criminals and enemies of Nigeria.

According to Egbetokun he felt like a Tiger and Lion ready to chase all criminals and Nigeria’s enemies.

Recall that President Bola Tinubu had earlier sacked Usman Alkali Baba, and replaced him with Egbetokun, in the acting capacity.

His appointment as IG was made known in a statement by the Director, Information, and Office of the Secretary-General to the Federation, Willie Bassey.

The President also approved the immediate retirement of all Service Chiefs, Advisers, and Comptroller-General of Customs from Service as well as their replacements with immediate effect.
