Outrage in police over lopsided promotions •South-East and South-South officers send SOS

There is discontent among some officers and men from South-East and South-South geopolitical zones in the police over what they described as “marginalisation of our officers” from the regions in the promotion of personnel.

They fear they may not have satisfactory career in the force if events continue the way they are, calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to come to their rescue.

The officers alleged that they have made representations of the alleged marginalisation of their regions without success despite their qualification, hard work and dedication to duty, pointing out that there is no Assistant Inspector-General (AIGs) of police from the South-East for instance.

To this end, investigations by revealed that there are about 29 Assistant Inspectors-General (AIGs) of police in the force.

Out of the 29 AIGs, 27 are general duty (GD) officers while the remaining two are specialists (medical and air wing).

It was further revealed that the veterinary section ought to have a specialist AIG but a GD officer is heading the section.

According to the officers, even with the 29 AIGs, the South-South and the South-East are being marginalised, as only one officer from the South-South is an AIG, while there is no AIG from the South-East.

It was gathered that while the South-East zone has no AIG, Niger State – where the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, comes from – and Plateau State have two and three AIGs, respectively.

It was further gathered that since Ibrahim Idris took over as the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) on June 21, 2016, no Commissioner of Police (CP) from the South-East has been recommended to the Police Service Commission (PSC) for promotion to the rank of AIG.

When DAILY INDEPENDENT called Jimoh Moshood, Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), he advised the newspaper to reach PSC, which, he said, is in charge of officers of that category.

However, a dependable source close to the Chairman of PSC, retired IGP Mike Okiro, explained on phone that promotion to the rank of AIG was not determined by quota or the federal character principle.

“Promotion from the rank of Commissioner of Police is not done on quota system or on federal character basis.

“In the police, only the rank of Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) is done on quota system or on federal character.”

The source cited the Chairman of PSC who, he said, “was promoted from the rank of a CP to the rank of DIG, even when there were two AIGs senior to him.”

The source added: “Another rank that is done on either quota system or on federal character is from Inspector to Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) only during recruitment exercise.

“Promotion of any other rank is done on seniority basis, except on hard work – an officer who has performed an extra feat is promoted to encourage him.”

Explaining why the South-East has no AIG, the source disclosed that a commissioner from the South-East may soon be promoted.

“There was a CP from the South East who is number three on seniority list in the force. He will be given an AIG before the year ends,” the source assured.

On Tuesday, Last week, the PSC announced the promotion of 414 officers.

A breakdown shows that three Commissioners of Police (CPs) were promoted to the next rank of AIGs, four Deputy Commissioners (DCPs) to Commissioners of Police (CPs) and 12 Assistant Commissioners (ACPs) to DCPs.

The three CPs promoted to the rank of AIG are CP Danjuma Ibrahim, CP Istifanus Shettima, and CP Jimoh Omeiza Ozi-Obeh.

Findings revealed that promotion to a higher rank is not automatic but on availability of vacancy.

“A whole zone cannot produce an AIG, yet Niger State – where the IGP comes from – produces two AIGs. This is one of the lopsidedness and oppression going on in this government. We leave everything to God,” one of the senior officers from the South-East lamented.

Similarly, some officers from the South-South who spoke on strict anonymity also complained about the situation.

“Apart from not giving us (the South-South) equality in the police in the areas of promotion, most of our mates are two ranks ahead of us, and when we see them we salute our juniors who are now our seniors because they are from a particular section of the country.

“The IGP is showing tribalism openly, he posted only his people to juicy areas. He cannot be IGP forever, he will go one day.”

Investigations further revealed that to rectify the marginalisation of South-South officers, the PSC recently promoted Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohinmi, twice within six months to meet up with his contemporaries.

The AIGs and their states of origin are as follows: Musa Katsina (Katsina); Abdul Salami Ayaji (Kogi); Tilli Abubakar (Kebbi), Zone 6, Calabar; Dorothy Gimba (Plateau); Abdul Bube (Sokoto); Agboola Oshodi-Glover (Lagos); Umaru Shehu (Kebbi); Usman Yakubu (Niger); Abdulmajid Ali (Niger); Abubakar A. Mohammed (Nasarawa); Kayode Aderanti (Osun); Mohammed Usman Sani (Bauchi); Yakubu Jibrin (Nasarawa); Ibrahim Adamu (Zamfara), Zone 2; Abdul Dahiru (Kano); Salisu F. Abdullahi (Kano); Lawal Shehu (Katsina), border patrol; Aminchi Samaila Baraya (Taraba); Usman Alkali Baba (Yobe), maritime; Tijani Dada (Yobe); Abubakar Marafa (Kebbi); Dan Bature (Plateau); Karma Hosea Hassan (Taraba); Felix Ogundeji (Ondo); Frederick Taiwo Lakanu (Lagos); Hilda Idiruro Harison (Edo); Rasheed O. Akintunde (Ogun); Ezekiel Zang (Plateau), airwing; and Mohammed, medical.

I never expected less from a force headed by a disobedient fellow.

How did we get to this? You may ask.

Let's join hands and make the right decisions to salvage our nation. Enough of all these name calling and tribal insults. No tribe is superior to the other. All we need is good people from each tribe to overcome the evil that has plagued our land.

Definitely, something needs to be done because Nigerian police have been one institution that has demonstrated Nigerian unity over the years. Now that this bickering and division has set in, moral will be low for officers of the affected region hence more security risk.

I know someone like you must paint it that way. Can't you see the so called middle belt has about 70% of the AIGs. Many Northern states also don't have an AIG.
This is despite the clarification that the promotion to AIG has nothing to do with quota system or federal character.

why are the south-south Niger deltans complaining about marginalization in this contraption called Nigeria when they failed to see from a positive stance the crusades of Nnamdi kanu. They believed and adhere to the precepts of the so called one Nigeria mantra. They should therefore gladly accept the products of nigerianism.

For the south east zone, it is no longer a new news when it comes to the issue of marginalization. only that time and plenty of tomorrow will tell, for the struggles of the well meaning igbos will never be in vain. The God Almighty must surely aid us to be emancipated from the sharkles of this lopsided, parochial and good for nothing country.

This looks more like a political report than actual journalism unless the author is stating that all the current AIG's were appointed during the regime of Buhari which I highly doubt.

In 2016, a certain Paul Okafor was promoted from CP to AIG, also CP Isaac Eke was promoted from CP to AIG although he is currently retired.

A certain Etop James was promoted to AIG in Dec 2017 but I can't confirm where he is from.

Let me tell you what will happen..

As usual your muslim pro-dumbohari skull will rejoice and beat your cabin-chest that dumbohari is coming to destroy Igbo totally.

He'll try and as usual he'll fail and instead you'll be the one gnashing your rotten teeth about rising cost of ewedu, gworo, fuel and other economic pathologies while Igbo who always sell their essential commodities dependent on prices they buy (whether high or low) will continue to make profits and smile at your foolery.

I have advised my colleagues in business to buy and save enough dollars and fill their warehouses with goods immediately dumbohari wins in 2019 as the next inflation will raise the prices of goods and they'll make almost 700% profits. Those in building materials and spare parts know what I'm talking about.

Outrage in police over lopsided promotions •South-East and South-South officers send SOS

There is discontent among some officers and men from South-East and South-South geopolitical zones in the police over what they described as “marginalisation of our officers” from the regions in the promotion of personnel.

They fear they may not have satisfactory career in the force if events continue the way they are, calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to come to their rescue.

The officers alleged that they have made representations of the alleged marginalisation of their regions without success despite their qualification, hard work and dedication to duty, pointing out that there is no Assistant Inspector-General (AIGs) of police from the South-East for instance.

To this end, investigations by revealed that there are about 29 Assistant Inspectors-General (AIGs) of police in the force.

Out of the 29 AIGs, 27 are general duty (GD) officers while the remaining two are specialists (medical and air wing).

It was further revealed that the veterinary section ought to have a specialist AIG but a GD officer is heading the section.

According to the officers, even with the 29 AIGs, the South-South and the South-East are being marginalised, as only one officer from the South-South is an AIG, while there is no AIG from the South-East.

It was gathered that while the South-East zone has no AIG, Niger State – where the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, comes from – and Plateau State have two and three AIGs, respectively.

It was further gathered that since Ibrahim Idris took over as the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) on June 21, 2016, no Commissioner of Police (CP) from the South-East has been recommended to the Police Service Commission (PSC) for promotion to the rank of AIG.

When DAILY INDEPENDENT called Jimoh Moshood, Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), he advised the newspaper to reach PSC, which, he said, is in charge of officers of that category.

However, a dependable source close to the Chairman of PSC, retired IGP Mike Okiro, explained on phone that promotion to the rank of AIG was not determined by quota or the federal character principle.

“Promotion from the rank of Commissioner of Police is not done on quota system or on federal character basis.

“In the police, only the rank of Deputy Inspector-General of Police (DIG) is done on quota system or on federal character.”

The source cited the Chairman of PSC who, he said, “was promoted from the rank of a CP to the rank of DIG, even when there were two AIGs senior to him.”

The source added: “Another rank that is done on either quota system or on federal character is from Inspector to Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) only during recruitment exercise.

“Promotion of any other rank is done on seniority basis, except on hard work – an officer who has performed an extra feat is promoted to encourage him.”

Explaining why the South-East has no AIG, the source disclosed that a commissioner from the South-East may soon be promoted.

“There was a CP from the South East who is number three on seniority list in the force. He will be given an AIG before the year ends,” the source assured.

On Tuesday, Last week, the PSC announced the promotion of 414 officers.

A breakdown shows that three Commissioners of Police (CPs) were promoted to the next rank of AIGs, four Deputy Commissioners (DCPs) to Commissioners of Police (CPs) and 12 Assistant Commissioners (ACPs) to DCPs.

The three CPs promoted to the rank of AIG are CP Danjuma Ibrahim, CP Istifanus Shettima, and CP Jimoh Omeiza Ozi-Obeh.

Findings revealed that promotion to a higher rank is not automatic but on availability of vacancy.

“A whole zone cannot produce an AIG, yet Niger State – where the IGP comes from – produces two AIGs. This is one of the lopsidedness and oppression going on in this government. We leave everything to God,” one of the senior officers from the South-East lamented.

Similarly, some officers from the South-South who spoke on strict anonymity also complained about the situation.

“Apart from not giving us (the South-South) equality in the police in the areas of promotion, most of our mates are two ranks ahead of us, and when we see them we salute our juniors who are now our seniors because they are from a particular section of the country.

“The IGP is showing tribalism openly, he posted only his people to juicy areas. He cannot be IGP forever, he will go one day.”

Investigations further revealed that to rectify the marginalisation of South-South officers, the PSC recently promoted Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohinmi, twice within six months to meet up with his contemporaries.

The AIGs and their states of origin are as follows: Musa Katsina (Katsina); Abdul Salami Ayaji (Kogi); Tilli Abubakar (Kebbi), Zone 6, Calabar; Dorothy Gimba (Plateau); Abdul Bube (Sokoto); Agboola Oshodi-Glover (Lagos); Umaru Shehu (Kebbi); Usman Yakubu (Niger); Abdulmajid Ali (Niger); Abubakar A. Mohammed (Nasarawa); Kayode Aderanti (Osun); Mohammed Usman Sani (Bauchi); Yakubu Jibrin (Nasarawa); Ibrahim Adamu (Zamfara), Zone 2; Abdul Dahiru (Kano); Salisu F. Abdullahi (Kano); Lawal Shehu (Katsina), border patrol; Aminchi Samaila Baraya (Taraba); Usman Alkali Baba (Yobe), maritime; Tijani Dada (Yobe); Abubakar Marafa (Kebbi); Dan Bature (Plateau); Karma Hosea Hassan (Taraba); Felix Ogundeji (Ondo); Frederick Taiwo Lakanu (Lagos); Hilda Idiruro Harison (Edo); Rasheed O. Akintunde (Ogun); Ezekiel Zang (Plateau), airwing; and Mohammed, medical.
