Others are Chintua Amajor-Onu, as DIG in-charge of Department of Information and Communications Technology and; Jubril Adeniji as DIG in-charge of Department of Research and Planning.

In a related development, the Nigerian Police Force have thrown their doors open to recruitment for prospective applicants.
This is in consonance with President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive for recruitment of 10,000 fresh personnels to fortify the police and alleviate unemployment challenges in the country.
Following that directive, however, the Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Mr Mike Okiro, on Thursday, said Nigeria currently has a deficit of 19,500 policemen.
