Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Wednesday decorated a Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, as the acting Inspector-General of Police.

The event took place at Aso Villa in Abuja.

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), through the Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammad Dingyadi, had on Tuesday appointed Baba to succeed Mohammed Adamu.

The President is in London for medical check-up.

Adamu, whose tenure ended in February after completion of his mandatory 35 years of service, got a three-month extension by the President but he had only spent about two months out of the three-month extension when he was replaced.

Treibunepoint Weekly had reported that Adamu was in Owerri, the Imo State capital, when the police affairs minister made the announcement. Adamu had visited the state following attacks on the Imo State Police Command headquarters and the Owerri Correctional Prison.

Born in 1963, Baba, an alumnus of Bayero University, Kano, and the University of Maiduguri, joined the Nigeria Police Force in 1988.

He holds a Teacher’s Grade II Certificate (TC II) from Teachers College, Potiskum, Yobe State in 1980.

He obtained a degree in Political Science from Bayero University, Kano in 1985.

The Acting IGP also has a Masters in Public Administration obtained from the University of Maiduguri, Borno State in 1997.
