According to CSP Moshood, “new Area Commanders, Divisional Police Officers, other superior Police officers, Inspectors and rank and files have been posted to take over from the outgoing ones.

“The redeployment is to bring in new experience and fresh impetus to the fights against kidnappings, armed robberies and other violent crimes on these highways, and ensure full execution of Operations Absolute Sanity’s strategies in achieving the stipulated mandates of the operations.”

Also, the Force PRO announced that the IGP has promoted posthumously Inspector Idris Musa to the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police “for act of bravery, gallantry and supreme sacrifice of losing his life in active service to his fatherland, Nigeria and the Nigeria Police Force. The late Police officer will be remembered as one of the heroes of the Nigeria Police Force in the fight against Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria.”

Inspector Musa died at about 0100hr of July 24, 2017 from injury he sustained along with two other Police officers who survived when they came under Improved Explosive Devices (IEDs) attack from Boko Haram insurgents who were moving out to attack public centres, place of worships and other locations in Kano metropolis in the early hours of July 23.
