“When I received the recommendation of the promotion from the First Lady that the ADC had been performing his duty diligently with honesty and dedication.

“I had no option than to put my own recommendation to the Police Service Commission for his elevation. Shugaba has today joined the league of senior officers in the Nigeria Police,” the IGP said.

Mr Alkali-Baba described the Nigerian police as a reputable institution, which guaranteed service to humanity, and the protection of lives and property of the citizenry.
