IG Suspends Special Promotions, Warns Against Political Interference

The Inspector General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, has suspended special promotions within the Force with immediate effect.

The police boss made this known while decorating newly promoted top officers of the Police Force held in Abuja on Friday.

He condemned some officers who lobby for special promotions, noting that henceforth, anyone recommended by politicians and influential personalities in society would be disciplined.

Egbetokun also said when the need arises for any officer to be promoted specially, the issue will be handled by the police management.

He also banned undue soliciting for posting, warning that anyone found guilty of this act would be dealt with in accordance with the law of the Force.

Following the warning, the police boss decorated 15 senior police officers, who were recently promoted from their initial ranks to a new rank.

Those newly decorated include one Deputy Inspector-General of Police, 11 Assistant Inspectors-General of Police and 15 Commissioners of Police.

Egbetokun advised the newly promoted officers to live up to expectations and be a good example to their junior officers.
